What we're about

This group is for everyone working in Natural Language Processing technologies and applications. Our New York City meetings provide opportunities to hear about and present innovative work and research, to learn about emerging technologies, network, and exchange ideas and brainstorm, and we also meet online so this group is for everyone! Topics include machine learning, computational linguistics, text analytics, speech processing, conversational systems, sentiment and emotion AI, and search and applications in finance, customer experience, online and social media, health sciences, and more.

NERD: Better Named Entity Recognition and Disambiguation

Online event

Join us online for a presentation on Better Named Entity Recognition and Disambiguation by Domenic Puzio, a Machine Learning Engineer at Kensho Technologies. This session starts at 2 pm US-Eastern, 11 am US-Pacific, 7 pm UK, and 8 pm CET.

The talk: Named Entity Recognition and Disambiguation is the task of extracting important entities (people, places, organizations, etc.) from text and linking them to an appropriate database. At Kensho, we are interested in recognizing a wide variety of entities across different problem spaces - financial, medical, legal, and more. In this talk, I will talk about Kensho NERD: a flexible framework to solve entity recognition and disambiguation across domains with unique sets of entities. I will focus on two key elements: (1) how the system was designed to adapt to different problem spaces, and (2) how we built robust models for various domains and use cases by leveraging open-source data from Wikimedia.

Bio: Domenic Puzio is a Machine Learning Engineer at Kensho Technologies (https://kensho.com/). He works on NLP problems, building models to draw insights from unstructured text. His work has been used in cybersecurity, financial, and geopolitical applications. His recent projects include building organization-focused Named Entity Recognition and using transformers for dynamic text classification. Domenic lives with his wife in Charlottesville, VA, and enjoys reading type-hinted Python code and the works of J.R.R. Tolkien.
