Resume making is very tricky. A candidate has many dilemmas,
- whether to state a project at length or just mention the bare minimum
- whether to mention many skills or just mention his/her core competency skill…
Nowadays, lot's of discussion is happening around the question of what artificial intelligence can and can't do. Even though artificial intelligence has a controversial status, this technology already has some real-life business applications and delivers proven results.
Building a meaningful interaction with…Continue

Introduction to topic model:
In machine learning and natural language processing, a topic model is a type of statistical model for discovering the abstract "topics" that occur in a collection of documents. Topic modeling is a frequently used text-mining tool for discovery of hidden semantic structures in a text body.
In topic modeling, a topic is defined by a cluster of words with each word in the cluster having a probability of occurrence for the given topic, …Continue

Summary: Recurrent Neural Nets (RNNs) are at the core of the most common AI applications in use today but we are rapidly recognizing broad time series problem types where they don’t fit well. Several alternatives are already in use and one that’s just been introduced, ODE net is a radical departure from our way of thinking about the solution.

Everything we express (either verbally or in written) carries huge amounts of information. The topic we choose, our tone, our selection of words, everything adds some type of information that can be interpreted and value extracted from it. In theory, we can understand and even predict human behaviour using that information.…Continue

Measuring the similarity between texts is a common task in many applications. It is useful in classic NLP fields like search, as well as in such far from NLP areas as medicine and genetics. There are many different approaches of how to compare two texts (strings of characters). Each has its own advantages and disadvantages and is good only…Continue

What is NLP?
Natural Language Processing (NLP) can be simply defined as teaching an algorithm to read and analyze human (natural) languages just like the human brain does, but a lot faster than a human could, more accurately and on very large amounts of data.
It is a great skill to have if you are an aspiring data scientist or data analyst because has…Continue

Articulate is an open source project that will allow you to take control of you conversational interfaces, without being worried where and how your data is stored. Also, Articulate is built with an user-centered design where the main goal is to make experts and beginners feel comfortable when building their intelligent agents.
The main features of Articulate are:

Around two decades ago, marketing existed as a soft function within organizations. There is no denying its importance, of course, but from an organizational perspective, it was a function hard to measure in terms of impact on the bottom-line. But then boomed the digital age, and with it, an advent of channels that came to be known as social media. And in its wake,…Continue

Enterprises are learning fast about the relevance and use of AI and Cognitive Computing platforms. Before adopting AI and Cognitive Computing platforms, enterprises must focus on designing the right strategy for their business. A data-driven strategy is very important to derive the maximum benefit from the platform that will help to interpret data and provide accurate…Continue
Summary: Our starting assumption that sequence problems (language, speech, and others) are the natural domain of RNNs is being challenged. Temporal Convolutional Nets (TCNs) which are our workhorse CNNs with a few new features are outperforming RNNs on major applications today. Looks like RNNs may well be history.
This is a continuation of my previous blog, “Natural Language Understanding – Application Notes with Context Discriminant”.
Natural Language Understanding (NLU) is a subtopic of Natural Language Processing (NLP). Successful implementations of NLU are difficult because of limitations in prevailing technology. SiteFocus solved these limitations with a new approach to NLU. This approach has been successfully…Continue
Summary: Which is more important, the data or the algorithms? This chicken and egg question led me to realize that it’s the data, and specifically the way we store and process the data that has dominated data science over the last 10 years. And it all leads back to Hadoop.
Many of us are bombarded with various recommendations in our day to day life, be it on e-commerce sites or social media sites. Some of the recommendations look relevant but some create range of emotions in people, varying from confusion to anger.
There are basically two types of recommender systems, Content based and Collaborative filtering. Both have their pros and cons depending upon the…Continue

Summary: This is the second in our chatbot series. Here we explore Natural Language Understanding (NLU), the front end of all chatbots. We’ll discuss the programming necessary to build rules based chatbots and then look at the use of deep learning algorithms that are the basis for AI enabled chatbots.
Summary: This is the first in a series about Chatbots. In this first installment we cover the basics including their brief technological history, uses, basic design choices, and where deep learning comes into play. In subsequent articles we’ll describe in more detail about how they are actually programmed and best practice dos and don’ts.
Business ventures based on existing or disruptive business models taking on the route of Initial Public Offering are always a challenge to investors who want to profit from early investment into those would be “unicorn IPO”. A good investment may get worse before it gets better. Others may get worse and never recover. Aside from the macroeconomics and consumer trends that could affect the outcome of such investments, the fundamentals of these new public offerings…Continue

Deep Learning can be used to automate just about every repetitive task that is currently or formerly performed by humans. Factory robots, autonomous cars, Internet of Things are example of these automations. Yet, mentally challenging tasks such as conducting research or strategic planning with natural language textual documents remain a daunting task for automation. We look into the root cause of this challenge and have implemented a solution to automate these…Continue

Prevailing AI technology for analytics prefer the use of statistical science as the foundation for machine learning (ML) on historical data to distill knowledge and experience. Whether it be supervised or unsupervised, the result is then incorporated into playback engines to analyze new data. These methods and procedures work well for predictable scenarios with known outcomes and known variables.
What if the variables are unknown, and…Continue

If you’re relatively new to the NLP and Text Analysis world, you’ll more than likely have come across some pretty technical terms and acronyms, that are challenging to get your head around, especially, if you’re relying on scientific definitions for a plain and simple explanation.
We decided to put together a list of 10 common terms in Natural Language Processing which we’ve broken down in layman terms, making them easier to understand. So if you don’t know your “Bag of Words”…Continue
