Tiziano

"I never thought I'd get so engrossed in a tech book, but "Introduction to Natural Language Processing with Transformers" was a game-changer for me. I've always been curious about how Siri or Alexa understands my commands. Thanks to Cuantum Technologies, I now have a clearer grasp of NLP and how Transformer models play a vital role. The mix of theoretical knowledge and hands-on projects was perfectly balanced. Working through the book, I've personally implemented BERT and GPT models using the free repository code, and I must say, the experience was both enlightening and rewarding. The future insights about models like GPT-3 have me excited about the next wave in AI. For someone like me, who had a basic understanding of AI but wanted to delve deeper, this book was the perfect guide. Highly recommended for anyone looking to dive into the world of NLP!"
