There are many resources for building models from numeric data, which means processing text had to occur outside the model. Robby Neale walks you through ragged tensors and tf.text, showcasing its text-based ops and explaining how to quickly build a model starting with text input in tf.data.

Prerequisite knowledge

  • Experience with ML development

What you'll learn

Re Nat: Core is automatically added (and is required). For future reference, you can also leave comments/questions on the github repo (https://github.com/tensorflow/text).

I just read your post on Medium, but there was no place to add comments or questions. When I get tf.text, do I also need tf core? Is core automatically included as a dependency with pip install tf text?
