Is Reinforcement Learning good for Natural Language Processing problems?
How would you apply it to NLP?
Hi Don, thanks for the question!
In terms of actually parsing and representing natural language, the focus would be on particular kinds of learning algorithms such as transformer deep learning models. I'm not aware of much practical or research use of RL for ordinary NLP problems, however, people do study how multiple interacting RL agents can generate simple language which is very neat, but the focus there is on understanding the emergence of language from multiple interacting agents.
