Catch-up with our latest session

Deep Learning & BERT – how Google’s language model could transform finance

Talk all things BERT - or Bidirectional Encoder Representations from Transformers - with Refinitiv Labs, and assess the current state of the art in Deep Learning.

BERT reads sentences as ordered sequences rather than simply a jumble of words, allowing it to understand intent and excel at key language understanding tasks - such as classification, question answering, and named entity recognition.

Refinitiv Labs have been using Google's BERT model and adapting it for the nuances of financially focused language.

In this 30-min virtual lab, we will share:

  • The principles on which BERT operates
  • Practical advice on using BERT based on our experience
  • A practical application of BERT to document classification - identifying ESG controversies in news stories
  • How we think BERT could transform capital markets in the future
