Natural Language Processing Exposed: The Art, the Science and the Applications
With Dr. Sid J Reddy. Data Science involves information extraction from unstructured data which is the discovery by computer of new, previously unfound information, by automatically extracting information from different written resources. Natural Language Processing (NLP), the art of text mining, deals with written text at the level of documents, words, grammar, meaning, and context. In this presentation, we will discuss several applications of NLP such as information extraction, knowledge synthesis, and entity retrieval. We will discuss how these fundamental set of algorithms are applicable for a wide array of use-cases and industry verticals such as healthcare, business intelligence, life sciences, legal, e-commerce, sales, and marketing. Case studies from these areas will be used to provide an intuitive explanation of complex NLP topics such as distributional semantics, computational linguistics, question-answering, conversational AI, and applications of deep learning to text data.
