This virtual mini-bootcamp is for Data Science professionals who want a deeper understanding of the rapidly evolving field of Natural Language Processing.
Natural language processing (NLP) is one of the most important technologies in data science, one of the top branches of machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI), and has abundant job prospects. Applications of NLP are everywhere communication is handled mostly by language: web searches, AI-based customer service, emails, advertising, language translation, medical reports, plus many more. In this two-week bootcamp, learners will gain a thorough introduction to cutting-edge research in NLP and artificial intelligence. Through lectures, assignments and a project, learners will learn the necessary skills to design, implement, and understand their own NLP models.
The following topics will be covered:
- Text classification
- Regular expressions
- Preprocessing of text
- Language models
- Sequence tagging
- Named entity recognition
- Vector space language models
- Word embedding
- Sentiment analysis
- Topic modeling
- Deep learning, artificial intelligence, and text generation
