DNN has become a key model in solving NLP related problems among these years. A complex DNN network also show their outstanding performance than traditional NLP approaches. In this talk, several problems and datasets from data competition, e.g., QA, argumentation component mining, toxic message detection, rumor detection, and disease entity extraction, will be introduced. The state-of-the-art DNN networks that fit and solve the corresponding problems will also be described and discussed.
