I am reading this article on how to use BERT by Jay Alammar and I understand things up until:
For sentence classification, we’re only only interested in BERT’s output for the [CLS] token, so we select that slice of the cube and discard everything else.
I have read this topic, but still have some questions:
Isn't the [CLS] token at the very beginning of each sentence? Why is that "we are only interested in BERT's output for the [CLS] token"? Can anyone help me get my head around this? Thanks!
