Abstract

Building a practical Natural Language Processing system goes far beyond installing an open source toolkit. I will give an overview of some of the components required, and obstacles that have to be overcome for a system that extracts entities and relationships from full-text documents.

Outline

  • Description of the real-life problem, and the ‘theoretical approach’
  • Theory vs Practice - when the 80/20 rule doesn’t work
  • Getting a feel for Machine Learning in practice (and saving the day?)

Requirements

None

Speaker bio
