This session introduces the Python nlu library, which provides the full power of Spark NLP as simple Python one-liners that directly read and write data frames. We will walk through some of the 250+ pre-trained NLP models & pipelines that come with the library. We'll then describe how the nlu library integrates Ray and Spark NLP to enable you to get the performance, scale, and accuracy benefits of both without having to learn new API's or implementation details.
