More and more industries and organizations are leveraging artificial intelligence to delight customers and cut through the competition. However, development and deployment of deep learning models is time-consuming and costly - often prohibitively costly. That’s when automated machine learning (AutoML) comes into play. AutoML solutions can significantly increase the efficiency … [Read more...] about What’s State Of The Art In AutoML in 2019?
Getting sufficient amounts of labeled training data is a major bottleneck for many machine learning (ML) projects. You can create fancy models but they will be of little value if domain experts need to spend years labeling the relevant dataset. That is particularly relevant in areas where high expertise is required from data labelers, like, for example, in medical applications … [Read more...] about How To Crowdsource Labeled Datasets Quickly With Open-Source Tools Like Snorkel
Traditional data warehouses are built for Business Intelligence analytics, CEO Dashboards, and other types of business reporting prepared for “human consumption.” That often implies that data in these warehouses is not ready for “machine consumption,” including machine learning (ML) models. For example, it is mostly sufficient for humans to know the date of a particular event, … [Read more...] about How Airbnb Solves Enterprise-Scale Data Challenges For Machine Learning
This year, I had the chance to attend the ACL 2019 conference in Florence. It was my first NLP academic conference, and I was eager to attend as many sessions as possible. In contrast to most of the attendees, I was not interested in any particular research area. Instead, I wanted to pick up on the general NLP trends - so I was happy to hear about the latest advances in … [Read more...] about Top NLP Research Trends From ACL 2019
This year’s annual meeting of the Association for Computational Linguistics (ACL 2019) was bigger than ever. Although the conference received 75% more submissions than last year, the quality of the research papers remained high, and so the acceptance rates are almost the same.It is becoming more and more challenging to keep track of the latest research advances in your area … [Read more...] about Top NLP Research Papers With Business Applications From ACL 2019
