Ines Montani is a developer specialising in tools for AI and natural language processing (NLP) technology.
She’s the co-founder and CEO of Explosion, a core developer of spaCy, a popular open-source library for Natural Language Processing in Python, and Prodigy, a modern annotation tool for creating training data for machine learning models.
Ines, who had already keynoted EuroPython five years ago, will share with us the developments, progress and lessons learned in the field of natural language processing. It'll be an opportunity for us to collectively retrospect on half a decade of work in the Python community within a field that is gaining in popularity and momentum.
Large Language Models (LLMs) have shown some impressive capabilities and their impact is the topic of the moment. What will the future look like? Are we going to only talk to bots? Will prompting replace programming? Or are we just hyping up unreliable parrots and burning money? In this talk, I'll present visions for NLP in the age of LLMs and a pragmatic, practical approach for how to use Large Language Models to ship more successful NLP projects from prototype to production today.
