Patrick Harrison: Modern NLP in Python
PyData DC 2016
Academic and industry research in Natural Language Processing (NLP) has progressed at an accelerating pace over the last several years. Members of the Python community have been hard at work moving cutting-edge research out of papers and into open source, “batteries included” software libraries that can be applied to practical problems. We’ll explore some of these tools for modern NLP in Python.
PyData is an educational program of NumFOCUS, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization in the United States. PyData provides a forum for the international community of users and developers of data analysis tools to share ideas and learn from each other. The global PyData network promotes discussion of best practices, new approaches, and emerging technologies for data management, processing, analytics, and visualization. PyData communities approach data science using many languages, including (but not limited to) Python, Julia, and R.
PyData conferences aim to be accessible and community-driven, with novice to advanced level presentations. PyData tutorials and talks bring attendees the latest project features along with cutting-edge use cases.
