Modular and Parameter-Efficient Fine-Tuning for NLP Models

University of Zurich AND (Room 2-02) Andreasstrasse 15, Zurich, Switzerland

Summary: State-of-the-art language models in NLP perform best when fine-tuned even on small datasets, but due to their increasing size, fine-tuning and downstream usage have become extremely compute-intensive. Being able to efficiently and effectively fine-tune the largest pre-trained models is thus key in order to reap the benefits of the latest advances in NLP. In …

How Does the Brain Create Language?

ETH Zurich CAB Universitätstrasse 6 (CAB G.61), Zürich, Switzerland

ETH Zurich Distinguished Computer Science Colloquium Christos Papadimitriou, Columbia University Host: Emo Welzl ABSTRACT: There is little doubt that cognitive phenomena are the result of neural activity, and yet there has been slow progress toward articulating a computational theory of how exactly this happens. I will discuss a simplified mathematical model of the brain, which …
