A most insightful presentation - thank you Dan Tecuci ! 

Prospector

A big thanks to Dan Tecuci of EY for such a great presentation and for answering so many audience questions!

Blogger

Thanks for joining us, everyone!

Thanks Dan! Very informative presentation.

 

Prospector

You imply the more complete the dictionary the better the outcome. Does each entity have to be compared to similar entities before an outcome is valid?

Thank you, very succinct and helpful overview of NLP.

Prospector

Is the interest in NLP generating new considerations of programming languages - I know R and Python are compared regularly, but does that debate differs R from Python, Python from R, or reveal new considerations for developers?

Blogger

Wonderful presentation!

Thank you, Dan Tecuci I will use this info to help managers better understand NLP.

Is graph theory used for NLP?

Prospector

Are you familiar with healthcare applications of NLP?  What are areas of greatest promise in health applications?

 

Prospector

I know that Google now recognizes some mistyped queries. Is that an aspect of this?

Data Doctor

By throwing away common words such as "of" or "from", don't you sacrifice the ability to determine the relationship between identified entities?  Seems liek this is part of the issue in understanding the "meaning" of NLP statements, such as the assistant example in your opening slide.

Prospector

What do you see as the areas of greatest growth in use of NLP in the coming year or two?

 

Prospector

Thanks for the wonderful presentation on how to get started with NLP

Prospector

Great presentation! Thank you!

Prospector

Very informative!

Data Doctor

I liked that he noted the "easier to sell" aspect - kinda that way with many tech stacks.

Blogger

@Zimana I have to redeem myself in some way!

Data Doctor

But it's a well-thought meta Ariella ;-)

Blogger

And I realize I misspelled the term: entity resolution, which is sort of meta given my question.

Data Doctor

Hey, folks. If anyone had trouble hearing or seeing the slides, you can hear the whole presentation in our archive (same URL) after it ends. Note, the most common problem is when a listener doesn't activate Flash in Firefox.

Blogger

Does entitty resolutin have to also account for possible misspellings, say "big bloo?"

Data Doctor

I liked that he mentioned building a search engine -  big highlight for businesses that provide an app with a great search capability. I think Evernote is great (some people don't) but much of the value comes from its ability to search in document and in notes.  My feelings come from how it recognizes my voice in the app.

Blogger

Seems like a smart guy.  Too bad because it's interesting content but he's not a great presenter.  I would suggest he start with "what do I want to communicate to the listener" and determine how he wants to take them on the journey.  Thank you for the invitation.

If you follow the car reviews on CNET, you can see how the reviewer speaks about "buckets" when he is speaking into a navigation system.  Dan's mentions on tokens and buckets gives a new view of those reviews.

Blogger

@mganesh glad you got it working.

 

Data Doctor

@mgangeh - great!  Always welcome!

Blogger

I've heard the phrase stemming before in R programming as well.  It also highlights that understanding and appreciating cultural usage of phrases to model the usage well.

Blogger

It worked, I just swithced to Chrome. Thanks for your suggestion!

Prospector

@spillski and @mgangeh it may be a browser update issue (had that problem with Facebook Live)

Blogger

Hi spillski - I am on Chrome (Version 62.0.3202.75) and have audio. Did you try to refresh the browser and see if that helped?

Blogger

@mgangeh and @spillski, try reloading the page. Sorry you are experiencing trouble.

Blogger

@mgageh,m sometimes reloading works. Also Chrome is sometimes problematic, though I am using it now with no problems. If you're at work, it is possible they block it.

Data Doctor

@Zimana, she thought not.

Data Doctor

No audio on my side either

 

Prospector

Word frequency count is probably the most relatable in business. That approach is already used in SEO for keyword density, so it's a good starting point to start an explanation to an exec.

Blogger

Ariella does it seem to improve the recognition as your daughter uses the software more?

Blogger

I wonder if voice recognition problems are not so much due to accents as to tone. I know when my daughter used Rosetta Stone to learn Spanish in school, it often failed to ick up her voice.

Data Doctor

Ariella - it's probably around the corner with streaming becoming more "en vogue" - I just got FB live for desktop, and demoed YouTube live for a small business group.

Blogger

We really should advance to video one of these days.

Data Doctor

whoops, I meant audio!

Data Doctor

And we have video!

Data Doctor

Thanks Jim and hello - will do on questions
