Machine Learning & NLP Specialists

Meet the Team

GILO can help your business make data-driven decisions better, faster, and easier.

Our experienced machine learning and natural language processing (NLP) specialists understand the nuances of the English language. We pride ourselves in accurately capturing and tagging industry-specific text that is trained for NLP applications.

GILO uses a combination of AI models and rule-based linguistic systems to make sense of textual data. We classify sentences and words, not just documents. Once information is extracted, we visualize textual data.

Finally, we integrate our NLP solutions into the GILO app, our in-house recommendation engine. The GILO app corrects countless grammar mistakes and rephrases sentences for clarity and conciseness. It detects common biases and fallacies. It summarizes long text and much, much more.

Reach out to our team for a consultation on how your organization can process and analyze your textual data with NLP and AI.
