Hi, I'm Ines and this is my personal blog. I'm a digital native, programmer and front-end developer working on Artificial Intelligence and Natural Language Processing technologies.
I'm the co-founder of Explosion AI, a digital studio for custom AI and NLP solutions. We're also the makers of spaCy, the leading open-source library for Natural Language Processing in Python, and Prodigy, a machine teaching tool powered by active learning.
I believe in programming until four in the morning in my pyjamas instead of getting up early to attend conferences about productivity. I believe in making the best possible products instead of launching just for the sake of it because some startup advice blog told me so. I believe in rational planning, logical consequences and bullshit-free hard work instead of "following my dreams". In short, I believe in doing things.
I grew up on the internet and started coding and designing websites at 11. After completing my degree in Communication Science, Media Studies and Linguistics, I spent four years at Exberliner, Berlin's English-language magazine, boosting ad sales, developing digital marketing campaigns and coordinating partnerships with agencies and brands. I've been self-employed since early 2015.
I live in Berlin with my five fancy rats, Chomsky, Avocado, Marble, Orwell and Wasabi.
