Course Lessons

Lesson 1

Intro to NLP

Arpan will give you an overview of how to build a Natural Language Processing pipeline.

Lesson 2

Text Processing

Learn to prepare text obtained from different sources for further processing, by cleaning, normalizing and splitting it into individual words or tokens.

Lesson 3

Spam Classifier with Naive Bayes

In this section, you'll learn how to build a spam email classifier using the naive Bayes algorithm.

Lesson 4

Part of Speech Tagging with HMMs

Learn Hidden Markov Models, and apply them to part-of-speech tagging, a very popular problem in Natural Language Processing.

Lesson 5 • Project

Project: Part of Speech Tagging

In this project, you'll build a hidden Markov model for part of speech tagging with a universal tagset.

Lesson 6

(Optional) IBM Watson Bookworm Lab

Learn how to build a simple question-answering agent using IBM Watson.
