Getting Started with Natural Language Processing is a hands-on guide filled with everything you need to get started with NLP in a friendly, understandable tutorial. Full of Python code and hands-on projects, each chapter provides a concrete example with practical techniques that you can put into practice right away. By following the numerous Python-based examples and real-world case studies, you'll apply NLP to search applications, extracting meaning from text, sentiment analysis, user profiling, and more.
When you're done, you'll have a solid grounding in NLP that will serve as a foundation for further learning. Key Features * Extracting information from raw text * Named entity recognition * Automating summarization of key facts * Topic labeling For beginners to NLP with basic Python skills. About the technology Natural Language Processing is a set of data science techniques that enable machines to make sense of human text and speech.
Advances in machine learning and deep learning have made NLP more efficient and reliable than ever, leading to a huge number of new tools and resources. From improving search applications to sentiment analysis, the possible applications of NLP are vast and growing.
