Ok it probably started with earlier pre-BERT models but BERT was the breakthrough model. It was a model that had been pre-trained with a gazillion (aka a lot!) hours of compute time to code its 125 million parameters. At the time we thought that was madness.

My team had been working on NLP and we tried to use BERT, which did several things, for search. It didn’t really go so well and in the end…

Noonean has joined the fight along with Google and AllenNLP to produce a research tool for Covid-19 scientists.

“Our EnterpriseNLP was designed specifically for this, a high precision enterprise scale natural language query that shows you exact answers. We outscore BERT and tensor solutions. At Noonean, we are committed to this fight and hope to stage our live solution shortly. It will be available on the website” said Gianna Giavelli, founder of Noonean.

The effort will combine the recently released COVID-19 Open Research Dataset (CORD-19), a repository of more than 29,000 scholarly articles on the coronavirus family from around…
