About this book

Flair is an easy-to-understand natural language processing (NLP) framework designed to facilitate the training and distribution of state-of-the-art NLP models such as named entity recognition, part-of-speech tagging, and text classification. This book will help you to leverage the Flair framework to build production-ready NLP software using the Flair NLP library.

Natural Language Processing with Flair takes a hands-on approach to solving real-life problems and associated methodologies that will help you to work through NLP challenges using the Flair Python NLP framework. You'll begin by installing Flair NLP and downloading models, and then explore Flair's extensive features before moving on to implementing real-world NLP solutions. As you advance, you'll learn about the basic problems, terminology, and concepts of NLP and find out how to use Flair to solve them. The book also shows you how to train custom models and embeddings on your custom datasets, build real-world applications with the models, and finally deploy them to production.

By the end of this NLP book, you'll have developed a thorough understanding of typical problems, and be able to solve even complex ones confidently using Flair as well as deploy the solutions to production.
