This workshop is an introduction to the Python module SpaCy, a new library for natural language processing written in Cython, and Scikit-Learn, a library for machine learning. It is intended for intermediate to advanced Python programmers who are familiar with natural language processing suites such as the NLTK, and who are ready to explore next-generation tools. We will cover advanced topics such as word embeddings, dependency parsing, and machine learning.
Familiarity with Python is required.
Please bring a laptop on which you’ve installed Python 3, SpaCy, Scikit-Learn, and the NLTK.
