Apply Deep Learning to Natural Language Processing (NLP)

Deep Learning is a powerful technique that has revolutionized many industries by dealing with unstructured data in a novel and different way. Textual data is one of these. Discover current state-of-the-art techniques that can help — for example — to determine intent and sentiment in text. This 2-day training offers a deep-dive into game-changer tech!

What you'll learn

  • The theory that underlies Deep Learning and learn to apply it to solve Natural Language Processing problems.
  • How Deep Learning can be applied to textual data and make yourself comfortable with the Natural Language Processing terminology: embeddings, dimensionality reduction, and more.
  • How the Deep Learning approach is fundamentally different than the traditional approach;
  • The (practical) pros and cons of working with either approach.
  • How to apply transfer learning in NLP and use pretrained Bert models.

The Program

The program of this two-day Deep Learning Applied to NLP course is as follows:

Day 1: Theory and Labs

  • Introduction
  • Baseline NLP models
  • Building deep NLP models
  • The encoder-decoder architecture
  • Attention mechanism (BERT)
  • Transfer learning in NLP (Hugging face)

Day 2: Hackathon

Benchmark the performance of bag of word models vs. deep learning models on short texts. The participants need to write benchmarking scripts that compare a scikit-learn pipeline against a deep learning model written in Keras. The scikit-learn pipeline will also require the students writing a transformer that accepts Bert/Spacy embeddings to see the benefits of using pretrained models.

Climbing a steep Python and Machine Learning curve in three days. This would have taken me months on my own.
