Using massive multilingual Named Entity Recognition for more inclusive NLP

Borach Jansema, a machine learning engineer at Slimmer AI, recently published an article in Towards Data Science entitled, Unlocking Inclusivity Possibilities with Polyglot-NER”, in which he talks about challenges faced when using Named Entity Recognition on non-English data sets.
