Revolutionizing Conferences with Holographic Presenters: The Future of Dynamic Communication

“Beam Me In” In a rapidly evolving world of technology, the way we communicate and share knowledge is continually being transformed. One of the most exciting innovations making waves in the conference and presentation industry is the use of holographic displays to deliver remote presentations. Imagine a scenario where you can attend a conference, deliver a keynote speech, or participate in a panel discussion without leaving the comfort of your own office or home. It might sound like science fiction, but this futuristic concept is becoming a reality, offering a new dimension to remote communication that promises to revolutionize the way we interact at conferences. NLP Logix has rented a Proto Epic, a life-sized hologram 7ft tall interactive device with 4K video and a touchscreen. It is thanks to this holographic display that we are able to be “beamed in” to a conference from anywhere at any time. You will see the Proto Epic portal being used at the ExcelinEd National Summit on Education, coming up November 15-17 in Atlanta, Georgia. This Summit on Education is the foremost annual conference where over a thousand education policymakers, state education leaders, and advocates come together to exchange results-driven solutions and strategies, [...]

Education and Adoption of Your AI Solutions: Maximizing the Full Potential

Education and Adoption of Your AI Solutions: Maximizing the Full Potential In today's fast-paced digital landscape, companies are turning to artificial intelligence (AI) solutions to gain a competitive edge. These cutting-edge technologies have the potential to revolutionize various aspects of business operations. However, due to a lack of complete adoption, many organizations find themselves not fully capitalizing on the immense benefits their custom solutions can offer. The Promise of AI in Business AI technologies have demonstrated their prowess across industries, from automating repetitive tasks to making data-driven predictions that can inform critical business decisions. Companies are utilizing AI in customer service, operation optimization, marketing, and more. Yet, despite its widespread adoption, there is often a gap between merely implementing AI solutions and truly harnessing their transformative power. Education as the Catalyst One of the fundamental challenges lies in ensuring that employees at all levels of an organization understand the capabilities and potential applications of AI. Comprehensive education programs are essential to bridge this knowledge gap. These programs should cover not only the technical aspects but also the strategic implications of AI for the business. By investing in employee training, companies can empower their workforce to leverage AI tools effectively. [...]

Cupcake or Wedding Cake?

Cupcake or Wedding Cake?   Imagine being responsible for picking up dessert for your three-year-old’s birthday party. Now imagine showing up, surrounded by Bluey balloons, happy children, and someone in a Bingo costume, holding a three-tiered wedding cake. Or even worse, imagine showing up to a formal wedding with a tray of Bluey cupcakes!   Both the wedding cake and the cupcakes are delicious, but neither would really be appropriate for the occasion. Natural language processing, as a field, is just like cake. Just as there are cupcakes, sheet cakes, sculpted cakes, and extravagant wedding cakes, there are simple bag of words solutions, discriminative NLP solutions, and Large Language models…and each solves a specific type of problem. Picking the right solution is just as important as the methodology for building the solution in the first place.   Custom-trained fine-tuned large language models are like the three-tiered wedding cake. These models are extremely powerful for situations requiring the generation of custom text, such as summarizing input data or answering custom questions. Trying to solve such complex problems with one of the more simple NLP models is showing up with those Bluey cupcakes. However, like a wedding cake, building a custom trained large language [...]

Data: Let Consultants Help Your Game

Data: Time to Let Consultants Quarterback Your Data Game Just like in the National Football League, every business today finds itself holding a football brimming with data. They've huddled, recognized the power of their data football, and know that it's their ticket to a touchdown. Yet, many are left fumbling with AI innovations, sounding more like secret locker-room jargon than the game-changing plays they truly are. The good news is, AI consultant companies like NLP Logix are ready to step in as the star quarterbacks to lead your data team to victory!  A recent Wall Street Journal article, "Consultants Emerge as Early Winners in Generative AI Boom," dissected this shift in play. Essentially, businesses are now ready to pass the AI ball to consultants and let them run the field.  Why the strategic handoff to AI consultants? Let's put it this way - developing AI solutions in-house is like trying to make a rookie play every position on the field simultaneously. It requires a lineup of specialized talent, navigating complex defensive data structures, calling the right algorithmic plays, and then keeping the pace through every quarter of the AI game. Sounds like a Hail Mary pass in the making, [...]

Everyday AI – All Around

Everyday AI Everyday AI is hard to ignore. As Artificial Intelligence (AI) becomes increasingly present in our everyday lives, we can see how AI technology can be used to automate mundane tasks and to make our lives easier. We are seeing AI being used everywhere, from voice-activated home assistants, to customer service chatbots, to self-driving cars. It is no surprise, then, that software companies are now turning to Everyday AI to help automate their routines. At NLP Logix, we are actively using AI to make our workflow more efficient. One way we are doing this is by using a product called GitHub Co-pilot. This platform helps developers automate mundane but necessary steps in the development workflow, freeing up their time to focus on more complex, logical tasks. GitHub Co-pilot also allows developers to share their code with the rest of the team, review and approve changes, and even automate the process of writing code. While Co-pilot certainly saves us time in automating things like the development of test cases and standardizing repeated patterns, it is not always accurate. In fact, it is often confidently wrong. Acting as the “human in the loop,” developers must carefully review and test [...]

Data Science Project Managers – Driving Success

Keeping Projects Hot While Staying Cool Data science has rapidly become one of the hottest, most sought-after fields in technology today. Companies of all industries are seeking the assistance of Data Science teams to build models, conduct data analysis, provide insights, etc. And while the data scientists themselves are critical to the solution’s success, the team’s project manager is also key. A project manager (PM) provides structure and focus for the data science team. They take input from business partners and determine the project workflow, ensuring that the project is completed on time and within constraints. Utilizing their expertise and resources, the PM assesses the cost, time, and risk of a project to make sure the team is set up for success. tilizing their experience, a PM is able to coordinate the right decision and navigate the unexpected. By bridging the gap between the client and data science teams, a PM facilitates communication and collaboration between the two, ensuring everyone is on the same page. The PM also ensures that business objectives are kept in mind during the analysis process and that the data science team is actually solving a real-world problem. NLP Logix, Director of Project Management, Natalie [...]
