Over the last decade, the phenomenal success of NLP systems has been mostly driven by deep neural networks and supervised machine learning approaches to a large amount of labeled data. However, it’s infeasible to annotate data under all possible real-world scenarios. As a result, these systems may fail dramatically in practice when dealing with complex textual data written in different languages, or even associated with different data modalities. In this talk, I will present works that are important to extend the generalization ability of NLP systems across languages. First, I will present our work on XTREME which provides a platform for cross-lingual learning on 9 NLP tasks in 40 languages. ​​I will then demonstrate two cross-lingual applications of task-oriented dialog and machine translation. This talk will be concluded with an overview of my research and some future directions.
