Thesis
Full-text available
Bidirectional Encoder Representations from Transformers (BERT) [Devlin et al., 2018] has been shown to be effective at modeling a multitude of datasets across a wide variety of Natural Language Processing (NLP) tasks; however, little research has been done regarding BERT’s effectiveness at modeling domain-specific datasets. Specifically, scientific...
