Advances in deep learning have recently fuelled unprecedented progress across a number of disciplines and, in particular, those of computer vision and natural language. An associated outcome has been the dramatic improvement in the challenging task of ‘machine comprehension’ which depends on both common-sense acquisition and reasoning models. The impact that deep learning has had on these two fundamental problems has likewise enabled progress in applications in machine reading, visual question answering, and imagination-based control. In this half-day workshop, NAVER LABS and Clova AI will demonstrate how these research topics are actively being pursued at an industrial scale. Clova AI is the AI content and service platform of NAVER, South Korea’s internet giant which runs the world’s 5th largest search engine (28 M unique visitors per day) and offers over 130 content services. NAVER is ranked in the Top 10 most innovative global companies (Forbes 2018) and is 6th on Fortune’s ‘Future 50’ list (2018).
