We present results from a large-scale experiment on pretraining encoders with non-embedding parameter counts ranging from 700M to 9. 3B, their subsequent distillation into smaller models ranging from 17M-170M parameters, and their application to the Natural Language Understanding (NLU) component of a virtual assistant system.
Recent large-scale natural language processing (NLP) systems use a pre-trained Large Language Model (LLM) on massive and diverse corpora as a headstart.

We present the MASSIVE dataset--Multilingual Amazon Slu resource package (SLURP) for Slot-filling, Intent classification, and Virtual assistant Evaluation.
Ranked #1 on Slot Filling on MASSIVE
In this paper, we present our results on boosting NLU model performance through training data augmentation using a sequential generative adversarial network (GAN).
For IC and NER multi-task experiments, when evaluating on the mismatched test set, we see improvements across all domains in German and in 17 out of 19 domains in Portuguese (improvements based on change in SeMER scores).
One of the core components of voice assistants is the Natural Language Understanding (NLU) model.
