Widespread adoption of NLP has yet to materialize. This is in part due to two important barriers to NLP utilization: development of NLP tools typically requires a) extensive computer science expertise and b) a significant time commitment.
To overcome these barriers we developed Canary – a GUI-based NLP platform oriented towards users without programming experience. We are now introducing Canary NLP Tool Library – a forum for public sharing of NLP tools developed for the Canary platform.

Learning Objective: To learn about barriers to NLP adoption and how they can be addressed.
