This video discusses the use of active learning, deep learning, Bayesian inference, and causality in Project Feels. This project, developed by the Data Science Group at the New York Times, sought to predict how likely a given article was to evoke a range of emotions. Thus project crowdsourced data... Read more
Watch: A Breakthrough for Natural Language
Natural language is valuable, but it is complex. With a 1,000 word vocabulary, a 15-word sentence can easily express more than 1e30 (a 1 with 30 zeros) different ideas. Today’s natural language processing is trained to bucket a sentence into one of a few thousand categories–which also means it... Read more
The State of Automatic Text Summarization with NLP
Ideally, NLP will be able to help humans complete tedious text-evaluation tasks, and its potential for use in fields like law and medicine have elicited significant enthusiasm. But where NLP has been applied to processes that do not align with strict mathematical evaluation, which perhaps require judgments of value,... Read more
Intro to Language Processing with the NLTK
Hidden information often lies deep within the boundaries of what we can perceive with our eyes and our ears. Some look to data for that purpose, and most of the time, data can tell us more than we thought was imaginable. But sometimes data might not be clear cut... Read more
Getting to Know Natural Language Understanding
We like to imagine talking to computers the way Picard spoke to Data in Next Generation, but in reality, natural language processing is more than just teaching a computer to understand words. The subtext of how and why we use the words we do is notoriously difficult for computers... Read more
Understanding Unstructured Data With Language Models
Much of our machine learning capabilities come from structured data, but the real payload lies in the messy, unstructured data underneath. If we want to gain practical insights, machines have to learn to parse things like social media posts filled with misspellings or sarcasm or handwritten doctor’s notes with... Read more
Using NLP and ML to Analyze Legislative Burdens Upon Businesses
The process of legal reasoning and decision making is heavily reliant on information stored in text. Tasks like due diligence, contract review, and legal discovery, that are traditionally time-consuming, can be automated, saving a huge amount of time. This makes the development of approaches that leverage natural language processing... Read more

The Promise of Retrofitting: Building Better Models for Natural Language Processing
Editor’s note: Catherine is a speaker for the upcoming ODSC East 2019 this April 30-May 3! Be sure to check out her talk, “Adding Context and Cognition to Modern NLP Techniques.” OpenAI’s Andrej Karpathy famously said, “I don’t have to actually experience crashing my car into a wall a... Read more
Business Applications of AI-Powered NLP
It’s difficult enough to teach people language, not to mention machines, and for this reason, language proficiency for computers is a moving target. People in the industry have struggled for years with the question of how to get more meaningful data into the hands of those who need it,... Read more
