In the newest episode of Orange Silicon Valley’s Bistrocast podcast, the conversation turns toward a new type of dialogue — the one between humans and machines. The talk features Sarah Luger, a research scientist in natural language processing (NLP) at OSV, who spoke about how artificial intelligence (AI) and NLP technologies are evolving, how they feed into each other, and what to expect from them in the future. Additionally, she offers insights on machine data, software innovation, and how AI stands to reshape human livelihoods and behavior.
Sarah holds a PhD from the University of Edinburgh in computer informatics. Her career spans work with AI, machine learning, and NLP at startups and other tech companies in the Bay Area. She is an expert in multilingual annotation strategies for machine learning algorithms in classification tasks and question-answering.
