About this video

There is an overflow of text data online nowadays. As a Python developer, you need to create a new solution using Natural Language Processing for your next project. Your colleagues depend on you to monetize gigabytes of unstructured text data. What do you do?

Hands-on NLP with NLTK and scikit-learn is the answer. This course puts you right on the spot, starting off with building a spam classifier in our first video. At the end of the course, you are going to walk away with three NLP applications: a spam filter, a topic classifier, and a sentiment analyzer. There is no need for fancy mathematical theory, just plain English explanations of core NLP concepts and how to apply those using Python libraries.
Taking this course will help you to precisely create new applications with Python and NLP. You will be able to build actual solutions backed by machine learning and NLP processing models with ease.

All the code and supporting files are available on GitHub at: https://github.com/PacktPublishing/Hands-on-NLP-with-NLTK-and-scikit-learn-.

Style and Approach

The course is full of hands-on instructions, interesting and illustrative visualizations, and clear explanations from a data scientist. It is packed full of useful tips and relevant advice. Throughout the course, we maintain a focus on practicality and getting things done, not fancy mathematical theory.
