The Ultimate Beginners Guide to Natural Language Processing



What you’ll learn

  • Understand the basic concepts of natural language processing, such as: part-of-speech, lemmatization, stemming, named entity recognition, and stop words

  • Understand more advanced concepts, such as: dependency parsing, tokenization, word and sentence similarity

  • Load texts from the Internet to apply natural language processing techniques

  • How to visualize the most frequent terms using wordcloud

  • Implement text summarization and keyword search

  • Learn how to represent texts using Bag of Words and TF-IDF

  • Implement sentiment analysis using NLTK library (natural language toolkit), TF-IDF and spaCy library

  • Introduction to natural language processing


The area of ​​Natural Language Processing (NLP) is a subarea of ​​Artificial Intelligence that aims to make computers capable of understanding human language, both written and spoken. Some examples of practical applications are: translators between languages, translation from text to speech or speech to text, chatbots, automatic question and answer systems (Q&A), automatic generation of descriptions for images, generation of subtitles in videos, classification of sentiments in sentences, among many others! Learning this area can be the key to bringing real solutions to present and future needs!

Based on that, this course was designed for those who want to grow or start a new career in Natural Language Processing, using the spaCy and NLTK (Natural Language Toolkit) libraries and the Python programming language! SpaCy was developed with the focus on use in production and real environments, so it is possible to create applications that process a lot of data. It can be used to extract information, understand natural language and even preprocess texts for later use in deep learning models.

The course is divided into three parts:

  1. In the first one, you will learn the most basic natural language processing concepts, such as: part-of-speech, lemmatization, stemming, named entity recognition, stop words, dependency parsing, word and sentence similarity and tokenization
  2. In the second part, you will learn more advanced topics, such as: preprocessing function, word cloud, text summarization, keyword search, bag of words, TF-IDF (Term Frequency – Inverse Document Frequency), and cosine similarity. We will also simulate a chatbot that can answer questions about any subject you want!
  3. Finally, in the third and last part of the course, we will create a sentiment classifier using a real Twitter dataset! We will implement the classifier using NLTK, TF-IDF and also the spaCy library

This can be considered the first course in natural language processing, and after completing it, you can move on to more advanced materials. If you have never heard about natural language processing, this course is for you! At the end you will have the practical background to develop some simple projects and take more advanced courses. During the lectures, the code will be implemented step by step using Google Colab, which will ensure that you will have no problems with installations or configurations of software on your local machine.

Who this course is for:

  • People interested in natural language processing
  • People interested in the spaCy and NLTK libraries
  • Students who are studying subjects related to Artificial Intelligence
  • Data Scientists who want to increase their knowledge in natural language processing

Olá! Meu nome é Jones Granatyr e já trabalho em torno de 10 anos com Inteligência Artificial (IA), inclusive fiz o meu mestrado e doutorado nessa área. Atualmente sou professor, pesquisador e fundador do portal IA Expert, um site com conteúdo específico sobre Inteligência Artificial. Desde que iniciei na Udemy criei vários cursos sobre diversos assuntos de IA, como por exemplo: Deep Learning, Machine Learning, Data Science, Redes Neurais Artificiais, Algoritmos Genéticos, Detecção e Reconhecimento Facial, Algoritmos de Busca, Mineração de Textos, Buscas em Textos, Mineração de Regras de Associação, Sistemas Especialistas e Sistemas de Recomendação. Os cursos são abordados em diversas linguagens de programação (Python, R e Java) e com várias ferramentas/tecnologias (tensorflow, keras, pandas, sklearn, opencv, dlib, weka, nltk, por exemplo). Meu principal objetivo é desmistificar a área de IA e ajudar profissionais de TI a entenderem como essa tecnologia pode ser utilizada na prática e que possam visualizar novas oportunidades de negócios.

A plataforma IA Expert tem o objetivo de trazer cursos teóricos e práticos de fácil entendimento sobre sobre Inteligência Artificial e Ciência de Dados, para que profissionais de todas as áreas consigam entender e aplicar os benefícios que a IA pode trazer para seus negócios, bem como apresentar todas as oportunidades que essa área pode trazer para profissionais de tecnologia da informação. Também trazemos notícias atualizadas semanais sobre a área em nosso portal.
