DC Natural Language Processing Message Board › Data Community DC NLP Workshop
As we continue planning for our second meetup, I wanted to let you know about another local NLP event that you might find interesting.
Next month, our friends at Data Community DC will be hosting a workshop covering the basics of natural language processing using NLTK. Ben Bengfort, data scientist at Full Stack Data Science and PhD student at UMBC, will be leading this introductory workshop and teaching participants to analyze text with the most popular NLP package for Python. I know several of you have already signed up, but I wanted to make sure you all heard about this event before it sells out. Details are here: http://www.meetup.com/Data-Community-DC/events/123049612/
Lastly, as always, please feel free to reach out if you'd like to give a talk about your work at a future meetup, or if you have a lead on a potential sponsor or recurring meetup venue.
