We are all set for a new epic PyData event!
For the ninth PyData meetup we are happy to have on board with us an amazing Data Scientist, Ilias Chalkidis, Head of Data Science at Cognitiv+ and a PhD Candidate in AI & Law at Athens University of Economics and Business.
Ilias' speech will be all about Natural Language Processing with Deep Learning! If you want to learn more about this amazing subfield of AI, come and join us next Tuesday at The Cube! All the details below:
6:00-6:30 Networking time
6:30-7:30 Natural Language Processing in the Deep Learning Era: The story so far..., Ilias Chalkidis, Head of Data Science at Cognitiv+, PhD Candidate (AI & Law - Deep Neural Networks)
“Natural Language Processing (NLP) is an emerging field of Artificial Intelligence with applications across many industries where people process documents. In the last 5 years, there has been a great leap forward based on the growth of the world wide web and the adaptation of deep learning techniques. The focus has shifted from building algorithms and using extensive feature engineering based on linguistic theories, towards the exploitation of big data (corpora) via deep learning methods. Recent advances in NLP bring ideas from Computer Vision and more specifically transfer learning as a keystone of moving the limits further ahead leading to near human or even better performance in specific tasks. The industry is adapting to this new era offering software solutions that can be leveraged from no-experts in order to use pre-trained models or easily build their own.”
Ilias, is an NLP researcher focused on legal text processing. He is a PhD student at Athens University of Business and Economics investigating the applicability of deep learning on legal text (e.g., legislation, contracts, case law, etc.) and business documents (e.g., financial documents) in general. He is currently the Head of Data Science at Cognitiv+, a start-up operating in the legal-tech and reg-tech industries.
Important Note: The Cube Athens has moved to a new location, Aiolou 73 Street on 6th floor, near Monastiraki metro station.
Cu all there :)
