Transferring knowledge to solve a related problem and learning from limited, unreliable inputs are examples of extraordinary human ability. State-of-the-art machine learning models based on deep learning often fail under such adverse conditions. How can we build Natural Language Processing technology which transfer better to new conditions, such as learning to process a new language or a new text domain? Transfer learning (TL) and multi-task learning (MTL) can help remedy this problem. In this talk, I will discuss TL and MTL methods to tackle this challenge and present some of our (on-going) work on NLP for zero-shot and few-shot transfer, including Danish, a case study on a very low-resource dialect and recent work on information extraction for task-oriented dialogue.
