BNP Paribas

Lecture BNP Paribas - 7 March at 16:30

The amount of natural language text available in electronic form is continuously increasing. Large organizations, such as BNP Paribas, already deal with an impressively large volume of text written in different languages. However, the complexity of natural language turns the identification of relevant information into a challenging task.
Named Entity Recognition (NER) is a problem in Machine Learning that consists in finding ways of automatically extracting information on entities by labeling sequences of words in a natural language text. The goal is to automatically answer questions like: 'What are the trendiest products in the market?', 'How frequently are other stakeholders dealing with our clients?', or 'What companies referred in a news article are our clients?'.
In this forum, we will explain the basics of NER and how it was applied within BNP Paribas to help in detecting and stopping money laundering or financing of terrorist activities.
