Lots of incident data is available in large corporate. However it is Noisy and inaccurate. Classification directly using TFIDF vectorization and machine learning models gives low accuracy. Lots of effort is spent in hand curation of data. Objective is to automatically extract features using deep learning techniques to get a higher lever representation of the text in the incidents. Downstream tasks like classification and clustering will be performed on this space. Presentation will cover the deep learning network architecture of such a system and the results obtained.

• What is Representation Learning? 1 min • Representation Learning in NLP and it’s practical applications? 2 mins • Introduction to specific problem we are trying to solve – 1 min • Deep Learning Architecture - 4 mins o Our NLP pre-processing pipeline
o Deep Learning network architecture we have used and Parameters trained with
• Our Results , Conclusions and Further work – Rest of time

• OUTCOMES/CONCLUSION The participants will be exposed to the concept of Representation learning. They will understand the application of Representation learning to the feature extraction space. They will understand how to apply deep learning techniques for natural language processing. Specifically they will be exposed to the deep learning network architecture used, applicability of deep learning in the field of natural language processing, the algorithm used, how the weights are learnt, lessons learnt and results obtained. The unique contribution of this talk is the methodology of application of deep learning for automatically extracting features from the textual incident management domain data.

    Thanks for sharing the draft slides and the preview video. The proposal currently surveys existing literature. Do you intend to talk about / show applications?

      Hi Zainab,
      Thanks for comment. The subject of the talk is the Application of Deep learning feature extraction for the Incident data. The talk will focus on the network architecture , the parameters we used and the results we got
      on applying the Deep learning feature extraction techniques for textual data specially the incident / problem tickets we have got.
      The literature survey is only to set the background /context of speech. It is not the main focus of the speech and can be removed if required.

      Hi Zainab,
      Have shared the current draft of the slides. There could be few more edits before actual presentation.
