"In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice. But, in
practice, there is." (source unclear)
We will talk about our experience with NLP in business as opposed to academic settings. Using examples like sentiment detection or football article generation, we will illustrate various challenges such as lack of data or very specific customer requirements.

Jirka Hana is a co-founder of Geneea. He has a PhD in computational
linguistics and teaches at MFF UK, so he has ample experience from
academia as well.

Rado Klíč is a software engineer at Geneea and Jirka's former student.
He also worked as a research programmer at Seznam and as a software
engineer at Amazon.
