The Unified NLP Platform

This keynote describes how the components of the Spark NLP ecosystem – Spark NLP, NLU, Healthcare NLP, Spark OCR, Auto NLP, Annotation Lab, NLP Server, Models Hub – come together as a unified architecture that greatly accelerates your ability to build AI applications.

New capabilities will be announced and demonstrated by a medical question answering solution – an end-to-end system that ingests raw structured & unstructured clinical data, automatically understands and connects it into longitudinal patient records, and then correctly answers questions about patients & cohorts.
