NLP Architect – Deep Learning NLP/NLU library

NLP Architect is an open source Python library for exploring state-of-the-art deep learning topologies and techniques for Natural Language Processing and Natural Language Understanding.

NLP Architect’s main purpose is to provide easy usage of NLP and NLU models while providing state-of-art and robust implementation.

Each of the models includes a comprehensive description on algorithms, network topologies, reference dataset descriptions and loader, and evaluation results.

Features include:

  • Core NLP models used in many NLP tasks and useful in many NLP applications.
  • Novel NLU models showcasing novel topologies and techniques.
  • Simple REST API server:
    • serving trained models (for inference).
    • plug-in system for adding your own model.
  • 4 Demos of models (pre-trained by us) showcasing NLP Architect (Dependency parser, NER, Intent Extraction, Q&A).
  • Based on optimized Deep Learning frameworks:
    • TensorFlow.
    • Intel-Optimized TensorFlow with MKL-DNN.
    • Dynet.
  • Essential utilities for working with NLP models – Text/String pre-processing, IO, data-manipulation, metrics, embeddings.
  • Supports CPU, GPU and Intel Optimized Tensorflow (MKL-DNN) backends.
  • Supports MKL-DNN flavor of Tensorflow out of the box.
  • Use NLP Architext t0:
    • Train models using provided algorithms, reference datasets and configurations.
    • Train models using your own data.
    • Create new/extend models based on existing models or topologies.
    • Explore how deep learning models tackle various NLP tasks.
    • Experiment and optimize state-of-the-art deep learning algorithms.
    • Integrate modules and utilities from the library to solutions.

The NLP Architect is released as reference code for research purposes. It’s not an official Intel product.

The NLP Architect requires Python 3.6+. The default installation of NLP Architect use CPU-based binaries of all deep learning frameworks. Intel Optimized MKL-DNN binaries will be installed if a Linux is detected. GPU backed is supported online on Linux and if a GPU is present.

NLP Architect is written in Python. Learn Python with our recommended free books and free tutorials.
