Course Outlines

Code Name Duration Outline
dlfornlp Deep Learning for NLP (Natural Language Processing) 28 hours

Deep Learning for NLP allows a machine to learn simple to complex language processing. Among the tasks currently possible are language translation and caption generation for photos. DL (Deep Learning) is a subset of ML (Machine Learning). Python is a popular programming language that contains libraries for Deep Learning for NLP.

In this instructor-led, live training, participants will learn to use Python libraries for NLP (Natural Language Processing) as they create an application that processes a set of pictures and generates captions. 

By the end of this training, participants will be able to:

  • Design and code DL for NLP using Python libraries
  • Create Python code that reads a substantially huge collection of pictures and generates keywords
  • Create Python Code that generates captions from the detected keywords

Audience

  • Programmers with interest in linguistics
  • Programmers who seek an understanding of NLP (Natural Language Processing) 

Format of the course

  • Part lecture, part discussion, exercises and heavy hands-on practice

Introduction to Deep Learning for NLP

Differentiating between the various types of  DL models

tsflw2v Natural Language Processing with TensorFlow 35 hours

TensorFlow™ is an open source software library for numerical computation using data flow graphs.

SyntaxNet is a neural-network Natural Language Processing framework for TensorFlow.

Word2Vec is used for learning vector representations of words, called "word embeddings". Word2vec is a particularly computationally-efficient predictive model for learning word embeddings from raw text. It comes in two flavors, the Continuous Bag-of-Words model (CBOW) and the Skip-Gram model (Chapter 3.1 and 3.2 in Mikolov et al.).

Used in tandem, SyntaxNet and Word2Vec allows users to generate Learned Embedding models from Natural Language input.

Audience

This course is targeted at Developers and engineers who intend to work with SyntaxNet and Word2Vec models in their TensorFlow graphs.

After completing this course, delegates will:

  • understand TensorFlow’s structure and deployment mechanisms
