Overview Overview

This course introduces linguists or programmers to NLP in Python. During this course we will mostly use nltk.org (Natural Language Tool Kit), but also we will use other libraries relevant and useful for NLP. At the moment we can conduct this course in Python 2.x or Python 3.x. Examples are in English or Mandarin (普通话). Other languages can be also made available if agreed before booking.
