Portrait image of Ines Montani

Ines is a developer specialising in applications for AI technology. She's the co-founder of Explosion AI and a core developer of spaCy, one of the most popular libraries for Natural Language Processing, and Prodigy, an annotation tool for radically efficient machine teaching.

Transfer learning has been called "NLP's ImageNet moment". Recent work has shown that models can be initialized with detailed, contextualised linguistic knowledge, drawn from huge samples of data. In this talk, I'll explain spaCy's new support for efficient and easy transfer learning, and show you how it can kickstart new NLP projects with our annotation tool, Prodigy.
