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.
