Overview

This workshop will introduce you to the basics of NLP. You will get started with the NLP toolkit and learn to use Python to process text, extract data from unstructured text, create algorithms and use NLP to solve business issues.

Natural language processing is one of the technologies that drives Artificial Intelligence. Its core functionality is to allow machines to understand human speech. Technologies such as Google Assistant and Alexa use NLP to translate our words into text,  that is then decoded by a complex set of algorithms which can be understood by machines. With the help of NLP it is possible to create intelligent and intuitive machines that can communicate with us.
As more and more companies understand the use and need of NLP, its market revenue is steadily increasing. From 277 million U.S. dollars. In 2015 it is expected to reach 919.3 million U.S. dollars in 2020. This has naturally raised the demand for NLP professionals who are coveted for their skills in creating cutting edge technologies. This is the right time to enrol in this course and get started on a brilliant career in NLP.

Hands-on:

Use NLTK to implement first order predicate logic using UML diagrams

Learning Objectives:

Learn to analyze whether a given NLP system produces the desired result or not and the desired performance is achieved or not which may be performed automatically using predefined metrics, or it may be performed manually by comparing human output with the output obtained by an NLP system

Topics
