Spark NLP for Healthcare’s fast pace of innovation is key to its success. Spark NLP had 28 new releases in 2019, on top of 26 releases in 2018. New functionality this year includes the first production-grade named entity recognition models backed by BERT embeddings; tools to evaluate and monitor deep-learning NLP model training; improved spell checking algorithms; major speed gains across all pipelines, in both local and cluster modes; optimized builds for the latest Nvidia and Intel chips; and 30+ new pre-trained NLP models and pipelines in four languages.
Beyond the core functionality of the library, Spark NLP became more accessible to a wider audience in 2019, thanks to the publication of a self-guided tutorial, a how-to video series, revamped documentation, new examples, and a new interactive user interface. The growing team also directly supports the community in an open Slack channel, answering questions daily in order to help newcomers succeed and get constant feedback from the community.
