CS224d: A great startpoint for Deep Learning in NLP

Even though I am in in Search and Information Extraction Lab, my research work focuses more on NLP. If you are into NLP, you will know that most of the major recent advances in NLP are using Deep Learning. Initially, I had a very tough time understanding most of the papers which used Deep NLP techniques such as LSTMs, Recursive Neural Networks, Attention models etc. This is when I came across this course offered by Richard Socher at Stanford. I am not done with this course completely yet, but doing a part of it itself gave me a lot of confidence. Best part about it is that all their assignments and material, which are very elegantly designed, are publicly available. Hopefully, this will also help someone who has similar interests.

You can find more details about it on its homepage.

Cheers.
