Be responsible for handling and directing technical teams to extract, transform, and load for features to support NLP for multi-domain datasets. You will be customizing and creating various machine learning algorithms to multi-domain data and determine and implement ways to optimize that performance of those algorithms on the data.
Employ NLP libraries/toolkits like Stanford CoreNLP, Spacy, NLTK, Word2Vec and Gensim along transformer models like BERT. With those models and libraries, explore subjects like domain adaptation both with supervised and unsupervised approaches. Build domain adaptive prototypes to examine the operational capabilities of bi-directional learning. Need to be a self-starter and honestly self-assessing to know when to seek assistance.
