This is a group for people in the Bay Area who are interested in Natural Language Processing.
Since NLP overlaps with other fields, we also delve into related language technology fields like Information Retrieval, Machine Translation, Speech Recognition, and Machine Learning more broadly.
If you are actively involved in any of these fields, or just want to learn more, please join us! Our meetings tend to have a mix of practitioners in industry, NLP researchers, and people generally interested in the language technology industry.
We are always looking for people willing to speak at or host events, so please let us know if you are interested! We prefer to mix it up and have events in San Francisco, the Peninsula, or the East Bay, in order to make it as convenient as possible for everyone in the Bay Area to take part in the community!
Note: This group has nothing to do with Neuro-Linguistic Programming (the other NLP) - you'll be confused if that's why you joined us!
Fresh of their latest round of funding that valued them at more than a billion dollars (https://techcrunch.com/2019/10/10/grammarly-raises-90m-at-over-1b-valuation-for-its-ai-based-grammar-and-writing-tools/) Grammarly will host and present at our next meetup!
We will update with more details soon - the time and place are confirmed!
