In every domain of artificial intelligence, there is one algorithm that transforms the entire field into an industry-matured tool to be used across a broad spectrum of use cases. BERT is that algorithm for natural language processing (NLP). In this course, explore the fundamentals of BERT architecture, including variations, transfer learning capabilities, and best practices. Examine the Hugging Face library and its role in sentiment analysis problems. Practice model setup, pre-processing, sentiment classification training, and evaluating models using BERT. Finally, take a critical look to recognize the challenges of using BERT. Upon completing this course, you'll be able to demonstrate how to solve simple sentiment analysis problems.
