Title: Using Graph Theory to understand User Intent
Subtitle: Graph-based Natural Language Processing applied to real-time Machine Learning
We are in a Graph Renaissance period. The advent of high-performance free/open-source software combined with inexpensive Cloud computing platforms enable graphs of information to be manipulated and utilised at scales never before seen. While use-cases like mining social and web data with graphs are common-place, their use in Natural Language Processing has largely been overlooked. In this presentation Michael Cutler will describe how TUMRA have used graph-based NLP algorithms as a core component of their upcoming digital marketing product TUMRA Optimize.
