JBI training course London UK

  • Process text data using Python tools
  • Extract important keywords and topics of interest from large text collections
  • Capture semantics using efficient text representations like word embeddings
  • Use Machine Learning techniques to categorise documents
  • Learn about the latest approaches to tackle advanced applications like language generation, entity recognition and text summarisation


The course will balance theoretical foundations with practical examples using the Python programming language.

No prior experience with libraries such as NLTK or scikit-learn is required for this course.

Having existing experience with Python will be extremely beneficial but not required: users of other programming languages and tools (including e.g. Java, C++, C#, JavaScript, Matlab, Excel or Rlang) will find this course beneficial.
