Event description

While the transformer architecture was originally introduced for natural language processing, this seminal paper showed how it can be successfully applied for large-scale computer vision problems. Published by Google Research at ICLR 2021, it has been cited over 28,000 times, and has been used as the backbone of several foundational models.
