NLP Applications Crash Course

Being specialized in domains like computer vision and natural language processing is no longer a luxury but a necessity which is expected of any data scientist in today’s fast-paced world! With a hands-on and interactive approach, we will understand essential concepts in NLP along with extensive case- studies and hands-on examples to master state-of-the-art tools, techniques and frameworks for actually applying NLP to solve real- world problems. We will leverage machine learning, deep learning and deep transfer learning to solve some popular tasks in NLP including the following:
-Basics of Natural Language and Python for NLP tasks
-Text Processing and Wrangling
-Text Representation – BOW \ Embeddings (a brief)
-Topic Modeling – Case Study on trending topics in research papers from NIPS proceedings
-Text Summarization – Factorization and Deep Transfer Learning Methods
-Text Classification with Machine Learning & Deep Learning \ Deep Transfer Learning
-- ML methods o RNNs\LSTMs o CNNs
-- Transformers
