Maybe the other day you were talking to a friend about pharmacies, and from that moment on you only get ads for pregnancy tests. Or you received a confirmation of your sushi order by email, and now your facebook is full of take-out food ads. Don’t worry, there is no person following you on the street. There are algorithms capable of analyzing human language. But in order for a machine to understand something so versatile and, let’s face it, so human, massive information processing is needed, which is the basis for series reocmenders, chatbots, virtual assistants or even online translation. This is the field of Natural Language Processing (NLP).

This week, we talk about ads and advertisers, ontologies, and the latest trends with our guest, Eugenio Martínez Cámara. We review current news, and answer the question of whether there are tools to do AI without programming.

This is SintonIA.
