About the instructor:
My name is Eric Fillion, and I’m from Canada. I’m on a mission to make state-of-the-art advances in the field of NLP through creating open-source tools and by creating educational content. In early 2020, I led a team that launched an open-source Python Package called Happy Transformer. Happy Transformer allows programmers to implement and train state-of-the-art Transformer models with just a few lines of code. Since its release, it has won awards and has been downloaded over 17k times.
