Course Content

This course is based on the Coursera Specialization on Natural Language Processing (https://www.coursera.org/specializations/natural-language-processing).

The course will provide you with knowledge and experience about most recent and advanced machine learning models for natural language processing. You will be able to train and use neural network to provide auto-correction suggestion, complete sentences and even build a chatbot. 
You will then apply the newly acquired knowledge to implement your own machine learning project in a team.


How it works

The course will take place every Thursday from 4 pm to 5:45 pm. 

Before the first meeting there will be a semesterkick-off. 

During the current Coronavirus outbreak, the course will also be available online via Zoom.

Towards the end of the semester you will then work in a team on your own machine learning project.  
All needed software and online course content is free. For the practical assignments in the online course, however, it will be necessary to create a Google account.
