Event Details

Interest in Neural networks is growing with many areas from image recognition to speech processing reporting impressive results. Applications in Natural language processing with Neural networks have found multiple applications. With advances in software and hardware technologies, and interest in AI based applications growing, it is time to understand neural networks applied to natural language processing better!

In this workshop, we will discuss the basics of neural networks and natural language processing and discuss how neural approaches differ from traditional natural language modeling techniques with practical applications.

What you will learn:

Natural Language Processing and Neural Network Basics

Understand the basic concepts of NLP, traditional NLP models and Neural Networks. Know the key terminologies and technologies that are used for processing text data.

Key NLP techniques and Neural Network models

  • Learn key NLP techniques including text tokenization, word embeddings (word2vec, Glove).
  • Learn key Deep Neural techniques and using RNNs and Encoder-Decoder networks for text processing.

Guided case studies, exercises and applications

Through hands-on exercises and case studies, learn how Neutral Networks can be used in various NLP applications using Keras with a Tensorflow backend
