Natural Language Processing and Text Analysis
As an NLP company, our main area of focus is natural language processing (NLP), although we are also active in other areas of data science. The director, Thomas Wood, studied a Masters in 2008 at Cambridge University in Computer Speech, Text and Internet Technology and since then he has been working exclusively in machine learning and mostly in NLP. In 2018 he founded the company Fast Data Science Ltd, with an aim of delivering data science consultancy to large organisations, focusing on NLP.
We have built NLP pipelines from scratch, and worked on natural language dialogue systems, document classifiers and text-based recommender systems. For these tasks we have used both traditional machine learning techniques as well as the state of the art such as neural networks. We normally use Python but are flexible according to your organisation’s technology.
