What we're about

ODSC brings together the open-source and data science communities with the goal of helping its members learn, connect and grow.

The focus of this Meetup group is to allow ODSC to work with Meetup groups, non-profits, and other organizations to present informative lectures, workshops, code sprints and networking events to help grow the use of open source languages and tools within the data science and data-centric community. As such, our specific goals are:

1. Build a collaborative group to work with other Meetup groups, non-profits, and other organizations.

2. Promote the use of open source languages and tools amongst data scientists and others.

3. Host educational workshops.

4. Spread awareness of new open source languages and tools that can be used in data science.

5. Contribute back to the open-source community.

• Data engineers, analysts, scientists, and other practitioners

• R, Python and other software engineers who work with data or want to learn

• Data visualization developers and designers

• Non-technical team leads, executives, and other decision-makers from data-centric startups and large companies looking to utilize open-source tools

To access this webinar, please register here: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/6699518272655152142 Topic: Natural language processing for clinical text understanding Speaker: Wuruola Oyewusi, Research and Innovation Lead at Data Science Nigeria Bio: Wuraola is a pharmacist and data scientist. She currently Leads Research and Innovation at Data Science Nigeria. Her research interest is in Natural Language Processing and she has also been at the forefront of unstructured data application and open-source access, especially in the area of health and language. She's also a Contributor for the Python Data Analysis Library, pandas. Abstract: Natural language processing(NLP) is the ability of computers to understand human speech. It is a sub-field of artificial intelligence concerned about computer interactions with natural human languages. NLP has been successfully applied to many practical use cases and that includes clinical/biomedical text. In this webinar, attendees will learn how Natural Language Processing can be used in understanding clinical areas. As a practical use case, the session will include a hands-on session on how to apply Named Entity Recognition for clinical text mining.
