Griffin Tanner, Data Scientist @ KPMG NLP Tools and their Capabilities

ChatGPT has recently taken the spotlight in the domain of NLP, but there are some useful tools for building robust NLP solutions which should not be overlooked. SpaCy is an NLP library for Python which provides tools for textual information extraction. Hugging Face is an AI community which develops NLP tools and hosts a repository for models and datasets. Together, these tools can be used to perform powerful document analysis. Griffin will take us through some of these tools and their capabilities.
