Join us for learning how to get started with NLP and Machine Learning. There are vast amounts of data out in the world and the majority of it is text. One of the methods of extracting meaning and learning from text data is called Natural Language Processing (NLP). NLP is a fast moving and growing field of study that has created exciting results. Using NLP, you have the ability to extract meaning from vast quantities of data, enabling your organization to create actionable metrics. There are many practical applications for NLP, such as:
• Identifying different cohorts of users/customers (product preferences, lifetime value, predicting churn)
• Accurately detecting and extracting different categories of feedback (positive and negative reviews/opinions, mentions of particular attributes such as clothing size/fit)
• Classifying text according to intent (e.g request for basic help, urgent problem)

We will explore a few of these use cases during our meetup. Please come and learn with us as we explore NLP and how it can help unlock your data.
