Abstract
In this talk, I first provide a very gentle introduction to natural language processing (NLP) and deep learning. I then present some of our recent work in this area, i.e., the named-entity recognition of clinical concepts and drug names with the bidirectional LSTM-CRF. I conclude by discussing a number of other deep architectures for various NLP tasks such as sentence similarity and question answering.
