We will systematically progress through the course videos and notebooks in Fastai’s new 2019 NLP course. This study group is for anyone interested in learning NLP who has at least some familiarity with coding.
In this study group we will cover the course videos and notebooks in A Code-First Introduction to Natural Language Processing 2019, a course created by Rachel Thomas, of The Data Institute at University of San Francisco.
Knowledge of the following is recommended:
- Familiarity with working with data in Python, as well as with machine learning concepts such as training and test sets
- Some experience with PyTorch and neural networks
Meetups take place every Saturday at 8AM PST from December 14, 2019 through April 25, 2020.
*There will be no meetup on December 28, 2019 due to the US Holiday.
