Are you keen to learn the basics of AI and NLP? Are you looking to use NLP in your company? Could you? Should you? This week, James is joined by Valentin Tablan, SVP for Artificial Intelligence at Ieso Digital Health which delivers high-quality cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) online, for people experiencing common mental health issues.
Valentin has spent nearly 20 years in the field of Natural Language Processing, Knowledge Representation, and Artificial Intelligence. His team apply advanced AI techniques to Ieso’s vast dataset to determine which evidence-based therapy interventions are most effective.
Under his leadership, Ieso has created the industry’s first (real-time) AI-enabled tools that augment therapists’ which in turn increases quality and improves clinical outcomes.
Prior to joining Ieso Valentin was the lead scientist on the question-answering service that powers Amazon’s Alexa smart assistant; he is now using that expertise to help computers familiarise with the way patients express themselves during therapy.
Valentin holds a PhD from the University of Sheffield and is a multi-lingual language specialist. He is a frequent speaker on deep learning tools and techniques which can revolutionise healthcare applications, medicine and diagnostics.
