During the summer of 2021, I worked on a research project centered around natural language processing and reinforcement learning. I’ll be getting to work with transformers (specifically Bidirectional Encoder Represenations (BERT)) to hopefully train up a chatbot that can provide us a lot of important information depending on what we ask it. We’re hopefully going to reinforce the learning of the chatbot as well using Ray and RLlib to provide more satsifactory answers.
