Ascander’s phone • Automated vs non automated number is (123) 456-7890. Thanks, • Inbound / outbound SIGNATURE Noah Bergman Engineer at Salesforce • Within or outside the organization (123) 456-7890 The contents of this email and any attachments • etc CONFIDENTIALITY NOTICE are confidential and are intended solely for addressee… From: Alexis email@example.com Date: April 1, 2017 Subject: Important Document REPLY CHAIN Noah, how much does your product cost?
11.“Basic” NLP text classifier Steps: • Normalize and tokenize • Generate n-grams • Remove stop words • Compute TF with min threshold filter based vocabulary size • Compute IDF and filter n-grams based on IDF threshold Shortcomings: • Lack of generalization as classifier is limited to tokens from training data • Collection of n-grams doesn’t take into account ordering or sequences
12. Word2Vec or GloVe • Unsupervised learning algorithm for obtaining vector representations for words. • Training is performed on aggregated global word-word co-occurrence statistics from a corpus. • Word vectors for individual tokens capture the semantic. word2VecModel.findSynonyms(“cost”, 5) MONEY price license nominal budget

15.What are Neural Networks: feed forward networks “Loose” brain inspiration: structure of cells
16.What are Neural Networks: recurring networks “I grew up in France… I speak fluent French.”
17.LSTM • RNNs suffer from vanishing or exploding gardients • LSTM allow to chain and store and use memory across sequence controlled through gates and operations • Designed to be chained into RNN. https://medium.com/mlreview/understanding-lstm-and-its-diagrams-37e2f46f1714

19. High Level Model Architecture We present a “simple” BiLSTM model for text classification. Ob0 Of3 • Tokens are mapped into word embeddings (GloVe pretrained on Wikipedia) • The word embedding for each token is fed into both Backward Cb 0 Cb 1 Cb 2 Cb 3 forward and backward recurrent network with LSTM (Long Short-Term Memory*) cells Forward • “Last” output of the forward and backward RNNs are Cf0 Cf1 Cf2 Cf3 concatenated and taken as input by the sigmoid unit for binary classification x0 x1 x2 x3 * Hochreiter & Schmidhuber 1997
20.Detailed Considerations for the Model About dropout and regularization • We applied dropout on recurrent connections* and inputs… • As well as L2 regularization on the model parameters. Ob0 Of3 trainable_vars = tf.trainable_variables() C b0 C b1 C b2 C b3 regularization_loss = tf.reduce_sum( [tf.nn.l2_loss (v) for v in trainable_vars]) Cf0 Cf1 Cf2 Cf3 loss = original_loss + reg_weight * regularization_loss x0 x1 x2 x3 *Gal & Ghahramani NIPS 2016
21.Detailed Considerations for the Model About variable sequence lengths Emails come in different lengths, and some are extremely short while others are long • One-word email: “Thanks” • 800+ words long emails are also commonly seen in business emails tf.nn.dynamic_rnn( cell=lstm_cell, inputs=input_data, sequence_length=seq_len ) Solution: dynamic_rnn + max length + sequence sampling • tf.nn.dynamic_rnn (or tf.nn.bidirectional_dynamic_rnn) allows for variable lengths for input sequences
22.Other Model Architectures Considered We “settled” on current architecture through lots of experiments and considerations. • Single-direction RNN • Single-direction RNN with GRU • Single-direction RNN with LSTM • Average pooling for outputs • Max pooling for all outputs • CNN on top of outputs • …

26.TensorFrames turns a TensorFlow model into a UDF. Save –> Load –> Score Save the model: %python graph_def = tfx.strip_and_freeze_until(["input_data", "predicted"], sess.graph, sess = sess) tf.train.write_graph(graph_def, “/model”, ”model.pb", False) Load the model: %scala val graph = new com.databricks.sparkdl.python.GraphModelFactory() .sqlContext(sqlContext) .fetches(asJava(Seq("prediction"))) .inputs(asJava(Seq("input_data")), asJava(Seq(”input_data"))) .graphFromFile("/model/model.pb") graph.registerUDF("model") Score with the model: %scala val predictions = inputDataSet.selectExpr("InputData", "model(InputData)")

29.Lessons Learned • A well-tuned LSTM model can outperform traditional ML approaches • But data preparation is still needed and key to success • Spark can play nicely with TensorFlow using TensorFrame as interface • We can do end-to-end in single notebook and mix Spark/Scala with TF/Python • Model outperforming ML approach and is being productized
