Let me briefly walk through my carieer summary. After serving as a NLP engineer/consultant at Microsoft Germany, I acquired wide range of skills from Sales, Consulting, Evangelist, R&D and so on. When I was back in Japan, I bit the bullet to establish my own AI/NLP centric company called SPJ inc.
Right now, AI, especially NLP is still in its infancy and takes ages to break-through the situation. However, AI/NLP is sufficient to automate some redundant tasks. Thus one needs to know the correct usage of the related techniques. Our company's mission is to shed light on this. We are a so to speak "down to the earth" company to make use of the power of AI/NLP to push the boundaries of the world.
We are welcoming engineers in any background or even non-engineers. If you are interested in what we are doing and keen to join us, feel free to contact me.
