About this course

Deep Learning for Natural Language Processing teaches you to apply state-of-the-art deep learning approaches to natural language processing tasks. You will learn key NLP concepts like neural word embeddings, auto-encoders, part-of-speech tagging, parsing, and semantic inference. Then you will dive deeper into advanced topics including deep memory-based NLP, linguistic structure, and hyperparameters for deep NLP. Along the way, you will pick up emerging best practices and gain hands-on experience with a myriad of examples, all written in Python and the powerful Keras library. By the time you are done reading this invaluable course, you will be solving a wide variety of NLP problems with cutting-edge deep learning techniques!
