Software projects have a high failure rate, and the failure rate for projects using machine learning technologies such as natural language processing is even higher.

Matthew Honnibal shares “one weird trick” that can give your NLP project a better chance of success: avoid a waterfall methodology where data definition, corpus construction, modeling, and deployment are performed as separate phases of work.
