Advanced Natural Language Processing with Free Low-Code and No-Code Tools


Today, applying state-of-the-art natural language processing (NLP) to extract information from documents and images requires data scientists who specialize in current deep learning and transfer learning techniques. However, new tools are automating a lot of the model selection, hyperparameter tuning, and pipeline optimization work to enable business domain experts – lawyers, doctors, financial analysts – to train & tune such models on their own. This session introduces the Annotation Lab: a free, enterprise-grade, privacy-focused tool that enables teams of domain experts to build highly accurate models that extract information from free-text and visual documents.
