His ‘Legendary Deep Funk’ night at Soho’s seminal strip club turned music venue Madame Jojo’s introduced obscure dance-floor soul music to an eager London club crowd, sparking a global appetite for raw, visceral funk.
SpaCy, a fast, user-friendly library for teaching computers to understand text, simplifies NLP techniques, such as speech tagging and syntactic dependencies, so you can easily extract information, attributes, and objects from massive amounts of text to then document, measure, and analyze. This Learning Path is a hands-on introduction to using SpaCy to discover insights through natural language processing. While end-to-end natural language processing solutions can be complex, you’ll learn the linguistics, algorithms, and machine learning skills to get the job done.
Whether you’re a programmer with little to no knowledge of Python, or an experienced data scientist or engineer, this Learning Path will walk you through natural language processing, using both Python and Scala, and show you how to implement a range of popular tools including Spark, scikit-learn, SpaCy, NLTK, and gensim for text mining.
