Natural Language Processing (NLP) is a key component in many data science systems that must understand or reason about text. Common use cases include knowledge extraction, question answering, entity recognition, spell correction, sentiment analysis, and document classification.
This four-hour workshop will walk you through state-of-the-art natural language processing (NLP) using John Snow Labs’ open-source Spark NLP library. This is a hands-on workshop that will enable you to write, edit, and run live Python notebooks that cover the majority of the open-source library’s functionality.
The workshop is organized in three hour-long sessions, each followed by 30 minutes of self-guided coding, on Python notebooks relevant to each section. This is a live online workshop and the instructors will be available during the self-guided sessions to answer questions.
This workshop is part of the recommended preparation for the “Certified Spark NLP Data Scientist” certification exam.
