A small presentation in Spanish about the use of Haskell in the automated math tutoring domain, with an emphasis on its industrial features.
As presented at Universidad Tecnológica Nacional, Reginal Córdoba. A recap in Spanish of the Big Data Montreal talk.
As presented at Big Data Montreal meeting 21st. In this talk, I discussed some unique features of Apache UIMA that helped the DeepQA System beat the Jeopardy! champions in 2011. Particularly, I discussed how UIMA's two running modes (batch and Asynchronous Scale-out) were key to expedite R&D efforts while allowing for answering queries in less than 5 seconds for the show.
As presented at Montreal Python meeting 42th. A quick talk on a new project with a short tutorial on the underlining framework employed. This talk was delivered half in French and English (with slides in opposite languages).
As presented at Observe, Hack, Make hackercamp. A mix between the Radialpoint talk and the DebConf12 talk. This has been my best attended talk so far.
As presented at RadialPoint's community tech talk series. A short recap of my past machine learning experience. The talk was well attended and led to interesting discussion of the use of ML within RadialPoint.
As presented at the DevCamp Montreal event by Make Web Not War. This is the first talk about the experimental NLG framework in PHP I have been developing. The emphasis was in Open Government and Multilingual generation. Talks were only 15' long and overall the talk puzzled the audience big time. If you can't convince them, confuse them! Next time I'll go for a more abstract talk.
As presented at the Montreal Python meeting 18th. I have been wanting to look into NLTK for a while and the Montreal Python people gave me a great excuse to look into it in more detail. The talk includes a short tutorial on French and English language identification using n-grams.
As presented at the Grupo de PLN FAMAF, Córdoba, Argentina.
This is a very opinionated talk regarding whether or not to use UIMA as the central back-bone in an academic research group. The overall theme in the talk is that the UIMA overhead in extra work for team members might not make it worth it. Interestingly, they decided to adopt UIMA for a spin-off sub-project. My views on this matter will probably change as UIMA simplifies itself and further mature.
As presented at DebConf10, New York, NY.
This talk sparked very interesting discussion with other members of Debian-Java. Interestingly, I was for the most part convinced of not pursuing this line of work.
As presented at DebConf10, New York, NY
This talk is the quick-off of my work on NLP-for-FLOSS work. It went well and I got a few people interested plus a pointer to very relevant data.
Joint talk with Richard Darst.
As presented at BarCampNYC5, New York, NY.
These slides contain more questions than answers. We enjoyed preparing the talk very much and learned quite a bit in the process. We have an almost empty room so I guess it was the wrong venue. Worth repeating.
As presented at the NYC Search and Discovery Meetup, New York, NY.
These slides are a little dated and the main example contains a typo. See the FaMAF talk for an updated version.
As presented at BarCampNYC4, New York, NY.
I really like this tutorial, it was a huge success.
As presented at Jornadas de Ciencia y Sociedad a los 50 años de FaMAF, Córdoba, Argentina.
My alma mater had its 50 anniversary and I was honored with a talk during a symposium organized as part of the festivities. This talk ( inSpanish) explains my thesis work with brand new examples in Spanish and hints about some possible societal changes due to new NLP technologies.
As presented at the Cambridge Natural Language and Information Processing Research Group, Cambridge, UK.
These slides are for the most part my job talk and comparable to similar talks I gave at a number of other groups during 2004.
As presented at LIMSI, Orsay, France.
These slides are in French, wrapping up the EMNLP 2003 slides.
