Developing NLP applications in industry
Developing NLP applications in industry differs from the situation in academic research. In this talk, I will highlight some common challenges when building NLP for industry applications and show that even well understood NLP problems, like text classification and sequence labeling, pose challenges in real-world settings. I will explain our approach to NLP and machine learning and how we overcome some of these challenges at SAP.
