# (Talk 1) Phu Mon Htut : Transfer Learning in NLP: Tools and Tips

In recent years, pre-trained language models, such as Google’s BERT, combined with transfer learning methods have enabled us to achieve the state-of-the-art in many natural language processing tasks. In this talk, I’ll give an overview of the pre-trained language models and transfer learning methods in NLP. I’ll then introduce open-source tools designed for transfer learning of NLP tasks and tips on using them.

Phu is a Ph.D. candidate at New York University working on applying transfer learning methods to NLP problems and linguistic analysis of these methods for interpretability.
