About This Video

  • Independent solutions that will teach you how to efficiently perform Natural Language Processing in Python
  • Use dictionaries to create your own named entities using this easy-to-follow guide
  • Learn how to implement NLTK for various scenarios with the help of example-rich solutions to take you beyond basic Natural Language Processing

In Detail

Natural Language Processing (NLP) is a feature of Artificial Intelligence concerned with the interactions between computers and human (natural) languages. This course includes unique videos that will teach you various aspects of performing Natural Language Processing with NLTK—the leading Python platform for the task.

In this course, you will learn what WordNet is and explore its features and usage. It will teach how to extract raw text from web sources and introduce some critical pre-processing steps. You will also get familiarized with the concept of pattern matching as a way to do text analysis.

By the end of the course, you will be confident & have covered various solutions, covering natural language understanding, Natural Language Processing, and syntactic analysis.
