Course Overview

Natural language processing is an exciting and rapidly evolving data science field that fundamentally impacts how we interact with technology. In this Intro to NLP for AI course, you’ll learn to unlock the power of natural language processing and be equipped with the knowledge and skills to start working on your own NLP projects. You’ll explore essential topics for working with text data via video lessons and practical coding exercises. Whether you want to create custom text classifiers, analyze sentiment, or explore concealed topics, you’ll learn how NLP works and obtain the tools and concepts necessary to tackle these challenges. We'll utilize algorithms like Latent Dirichlet Allocation, Transformer models, Logistic Regression, Naive Bayes, and Linear SVM, along with such techniques as part-of-speech (POS) tagging and Named Entity Recognition (NER). You won’t need prior natural language processing training to get started—just basic Python skills and familiarity with machine learning. This introduction to NLP guides you step-by-step through the entire process of completing a project. We’ll cover models and analysis and the fundamentals, such as processing and cleaning text data and how to get data in the correct format for NLP with machine learning.

Nice course to introduce anyone to the world of NLP. Luckily been working on NLP projects for close to a year now and most of these is pretty intuitive to me. Clear explanations and a great course overall. I loved the topic modelling parts. I remember first having to use Latent Dirichlet Allocation first time at work when I didn't know nothing about it, but luckily had a very good boss who's super good with this stuff.
It's a good course... everything is explained neatly and simply.
I hope practical tasks are added to the practice of it.
