Title :
Chief Product Officer AI & ML
Topic :

Natural Language Processing Workshop

Abstract :

Machine learning is gaining tremendous traction. Stock market prediction, analyzing weather data, gaining better sense of sales data, etc are some of the problems that are being solved in machine learning. Here one uses numbers to train and predict a machine learning model.

But there is a huge focus on processing text to extract wisdom. Natural Language Processing (NLP) has made tremendous progress in processing text in the recent past. Question-answering, topic modeling, summarization, sentiment analyses, spam email detection, auto-response to emails, medical diagnosis, are few of the many problems that are being solved using NLP.

This workshop will try to achieve the following objectives: 
(i) Novices: Introduce NLP   
(ii) Intermediate: enhance the insights into NLP and sub topics
(iii) Experts: sharpen the skills in sub topics  

(1) ML and NLP fundamentals
(2) Neural networks, RNN, LSTMs, GRUs.
(3) Question answering, topic modeling, sentiment analyses, summarization and language translation
(4) NLP frameworks. Intro to Tensorflow, Keras, Caffe
(5) Word embeddings, word2vec, glove, language modeling
(3) Define an NLP problem statement 
(4) Implement the model; download the dataset, train the model and test the model
(5) Define next steps to continue NLP learning

Profile :

SK is a AI and ML expert and a successful twice start-up entrepreneur. He is a frequent speaker in meetups and a ML/NLP blogger. He believes that machine learning and NLP enthusiasts are looking for ML/NLP sessions where they can understand more of 'how' rather than 'what'.

His focus is to develop ML models to combine image and text processing. Also he has developed solutions in text summarization, question-answering and text mining.
