Episode Summary: Machine learning (ML) can be used to identify objects and pictures or help steer vehicles, but is not best suited for text-based AI applications says Robbie Allen, founder of Automated Insights.

In this episode of AI in Industry, we speak with Robbie about what is possible in generating text with AI and why rules based processes are a big part of natural language generation (NLG). We also explore which industries are likely to adopt such NLG techniques and in what ways can NLG help in business intelligence applications in the near future.

Episode summary: This week’s episode explores the current possibilities in applying natural language processing for legal contract review. We speak with Andrew Antos and Nischal Nadhamuni from Klaritylaw, a Boston-based startup focused on using natural language processing (NLP) based information extraction, from non-disclosure agreements (NDAs), in a live setting.

We delve into the current and future roles of AI and lawyers with respect to legal contracts. AI is currently being applied in applications like retroactive analysis and information identification in legal documents. According to Andrew and Nishchal, in the future we will see on-the-fly legal content creation from AI tools and NLP being applied to most commercial contracting. Although, one restraint that AI companies presently face in the legal domain is the lack of access to huge amounts of publicly available data.

Episode summary: Most NLP applications we hear about involve marketing, customer service, and other customer-facing functions - but that there are NLP-related opportunities in other back-end functions as well.  

In this episode of AI in industry, we speak with Talla's Chief Data Scientist, Byron Galbraith, about how businesses can leverage chatbots or other NLP applications for improving document search for internal company communication. Byron explores what is currently possible using AI to improve search operations using contextual awareness. Byron also paints a vision of what AI-enabled "knowledge sharing" and "knowledge discovery" might look like in the future.

When we talk about natural language processing (NLP), applications like handling customer service or chatbots which can aid with questions, come to mind. Yet, in recent years, NLP platforms have been increasingly used in content marketing and content production applications.

In this episode of AI in industry, we talk to Tomás Ratia García-Oliveros, the co-founder and CEO founder of, a Boston based startup which focuses on NLP problems around content marketing and content creation. Tomas explores how NLP platforms are now able to summarise resources on the web, perform contextual search and language understanding applications related to this domain.

In this episode of AI in industry, we speak with Michael Johnson, the director of research and innovation for Interactions llc, in Boston MA. Michael explores the inbound (human to machine) and outbound (machine to human) applications of voice based natural language processing (NLP) and also talks about attaching a timeframe to how soon small and medium enterprises (SMEs) would have access to this technology in a financially sensible manner.

 Although NLP is often associated with chat or text interfaces, voice is important for applications in call centers, mobile phones, smart home devices, and more. In addition, Michael explains that voice involves unique challenges that text does not have to deal with - including background noise and accents, which need to be overcome to deliver a good user experience.

Sales forecasting is big business. If you can better predict how much of a certain product or service you will sell in a given day, you can better stock inventory, better staff your facilities, and ultimately keep more margin in your business's accounts.

This week on AI in Industry we interview Dr. John-Paul B Clarke, professor at Georgia Tech and co-founder / Chief Scientist at Pace (previously called "Prix"). Dr. Clarke shares details about how sales predictions are done today, and what AI advancements may allow for in helping businesses sell everything from groceries to hotel rooms.

In this episode of AI in industry, Innoplexus CEO Gunjan Bhardwaj explores how pharma giants are working to overcome two critical challenges with AI: Data, and talent.

Pharmaceutical data is challenging because the same term (say "EGFR") might be referred to as a "protein", a "biomarker", or a "target". Gunjan explores how this kind of relevance and context for data - and how pharma companies may need to hire the talent issues involved with making life sciences and computer sciences teams work together productively.
