Spotlight: Illumination Works’ Data Science Practice Announces the Formation of our NLP Center of Excellence
Illumination Works (ILW) is excited to announce the creation of the Natural Language Processing (NLP) Center of Excellence (CoE).
ILW’s NLP CoE supports the exploration, adoption, and advocacy of NLP-centric technology, practices, and techniques across the organization, into the community, and with application to client-specific needs.
The Center leverages ILW’s broad base of practical experience within both government and commercial markets as well as extensive technical expertise across a comprehensive set of functional disciplines. Initial staffing for the Center draws individuals from ILW’s Government and Commercial Divisions together with our Marketing and Communications Department and Innovation Lab.
The discipline of NLP has seen many advances in recent years. ILW’s Data Science Practice is at the forefront to deliver on these advances and their benefits to clients. For many organizations, rich information is captured in textual format. Unfortunately, this textual information remains largely untapped. NLP techniques provide a mechanism to unleash the power of this information, providing organizations with new insights.
The focus of the CoE is to perform continuous engagement with research that helps our clients draw out new insights from their data. This in turn will improve decision making and increase business value across the enterprise.
The team will bring robust and repeatable processes, success metrics, and thought leadership to the space of Data Science and Machine Learning as well as promote staff skill development and retention, energize hiring, and act as a force multiplier for sales and marketing efforts.
ILW’s NLP CoE comprises an interdisciplinary team that provides fast access to expertise in the areas of Natural Language Processing, Data Science, and Machine Learning. This team brings innovative solutions that maximize impact and value for our customers.
