NTR Webinar: Text: Style + Content + Structure

NTR organizes and hosts scientific webinars on neural networks and invites speakers from all over the world to present their recent work. 

On February 8 Aleksey Tikhonov, Yandex, Berlin, Germany, presented a technical Zoom webinar on Text: Style + Content + Structure. 

About the webinar: 

The talk focused on text generation tasks, taking into account three aspects: style, content, and structure.

Tikhonov started by discussing the Text Style Transfer task: its formal definition, quality metrics, existing approaches, and the fundamental difficulties.

He also talked about modern ways of assessing the semantic proximity of texts and their shortcomings.

He ended with a discussion of what high-level structures can be distinguished in texts and how this helps in generating long, non-trivial narratives.
