Zero-Shot Learning (ZSL) is a new paradigm that has gained massive popularity recently due to its potential of reducing data annotations and high generalisability. In the pursuit of bringing product-ready latest ML research to our community, we have implemented ZSL for two major tasks in Spark NLP for Healthcare: Named Entity Recognition (NER) and Relation Extraction (RE).
In this session, we will explore ZSL models available as part of Spark NLP for healthcare library, how to use them using automatic prompt generation using Q&A models, and finally, how they perform on real data and help reduce data annotation requirements.
