The latest from Apple's WWDC describes making apps smarter with Natural Language Processing (NLP). I'm going to build a new demo for Cogsworth as soon as the stable Xcode drops!

Doug and Vivek have the goods:

Doug explains how annotations work in CreateML, combining an NLGazetteer with a tagger using "transfer learning" and a new neural model for sentence embedding.

Vivek also warns that tagging might require an order of magnitude more training data. I better get to work!
