Deep Learning for Natural Language Processing LiveLessons, Second Edition, is an introduction to building natural language models with deep learning. These lessons bring intuitive explanations of essential theory to life with interactive, hands-on Jupyter notebook demos. Examples feature Python and Keras, the high-level API for TensorFlow 2, the most popular Deep Learning library. In early lessons, specifics of working with natural language data are covered, including how to convert natural language into numerical representations that can be readily processed by machine learning approaches. In later lessons, state-of-the art Deep Learning architectures are leveraged to make predictions with natural language data.

Who Should Take This Course
These LiveLessons are perfectly suited to software engineers, data scientists, analysts, and statisticians with an interest in applying Deep Learning to natural language data. Code examples are provided in Python, so familiarity with it or another object-oriented programming language would be helpful.
The author’s Deep Learning with TensorFlow, Keras, and PyTorch LiveLessons, or familiarity with the topics covered in Chapters 5 through 9 of his book Deep Learning Illustrated, are a prerequisite.
