John Bohannon is a Senior Director of Data Science and Head of Research at Primer AI, an end-to-end machine intelligence solution for textual data. We discussed their process of translating ML research into ML products, through the lens of the following examples:

  • Zero shot entity recognition: zero shot entity recognition is a model capable of recognizing arbitrary entities without additional training.
  • Inference triage and their open source project “baby bear”.
  • Tools for detecting synthetic text.
  • Text Summarization.
  • End-to-end platforms for NLP applications.

If you are using or building NLP applications, make sure to attend the NLP Summit, a FREE virtual conference that takes place October 4-6.
