Who is this presentation for?

software developers, data scientists

Prerequisite knowledge

In order to get the most from the session, you need to be a strong coder, preferably in Python as this is the language used.

Materials or downloads needed in advance

- laptop - browser - Katacoda (https://katacoda.com/) account

What you'll learn

- Basics of the machine learning and NLP techniques - Knowledge on bag of words text representation - Text classification process

Description

Natural Language Processing techniques allow addressing tasks like text classification and information extraction and content generation. They can give the perception of machines being able to understand humans and respond more naturally.
In this session, Barbara will introduce basic concepts of natural language processing. Using Python and its machine learning libraries the attendees will go through the process of building the bag of words representation and using it for text classification. It can be then used to recognise the sentiment, category or the authorship of the document.
The goal of this tutorial is to build the intuition on the simple natural language processing task. After this session, the audience will know basics of the text representation, learn how to develop the classification model and use it in real-world applications.
