Hi, I am looking to hire someone on a short term contract (2-3) months to help develop a domain specific model to recognize entities in that domain given some text. Where is the best place to find people that might do this type of work? I have looked at upwork.com and it looks pretty good but wanted to put it on here to see if thats the best way to find someone. I have an expert t can do the training but need someone to help with setting up the models and doing the training tweaking work, ideally wrapping something in a microservice that we can call from the application we are building to do entity extraction. The domain is oil and gas drilling and we have a great set of public data to work with to develop the model.
We’re definitely pleased to see a community of experts growing around spaCy and Prodigy, so I hope this forum can be a good place for people to get in touch. Maybe we’ll eventually want to do something a bit more organized, but for now, I think a good solution could be to just sticky this thread so it’s more visible.
For any consultants reading, feel free to post a link to your website or a quick introduction?
Per MH’s comment below my firm does NLP-based projects that sound quite a bit like what you describe. The part where you say, “I have an expert that can do the training” sounds perfect because that’s usually where this stuff falls down
Anyways, feel free to drop me a line at nm [at] initiativegroup [dot] io and I’ll be happy to share some more info about what we work on.
