Porto AI :: Quarterly Meeting #1 – An introduction to NLP

March 30 @ 10:00 - 17:30

We are happy to announce our first quarterly meeting! We have been planning a full day of learning (hands-on) with two awesome speakers: Pedro Balage from Farfetch and João Lages from OutSystems.

Since we want to make sure that you are really coming to the event we politely ask you to pay a small fee (10€) that guarantees your participation which will be fully refunded on the day of the event after the check-inOnce you get your free ticket, we will send you an e-mail with more informations regarding this (besides the eventbrite e-mail with the ticket). Only after this last step, we will consider your registration complete.

In this workshop, we will offer an introduction to Natural Language Processing (NLP) with a special focus on deep learning approaches. The first part of this workshop will focus on how to model textual data with word embeddings and context embeddings. We will also talk about the basics behind the algorithms commonly used in NLP (word2vec, glove, ELMO, BERT). The second part of this workshop will focus on using this knowledge to provide data science solutions, such as text classification. The workshop will be 100% hands-on with Python, Keras and Jupyter notebooks. The participants are asked to bring their own laptops to interact with the workshop. In order to take more advantage of the workshop, we’ll send you the details about the libraries that you will need to install before the #1 Quarterly Meeting.
