This is a PAID event. Registration is required: https://aiplus.odsc.com/courses/nlp-fundamentals Instructor's bio: Leonardo De Marchi holds a Master in Artificial intelligence and has worked as a Data Scientist in the sport world, with clients such as the New York Knicks and Manchester United, and with large social networks, like Justgiving. He now works as a Head of Data Scientist and Analytics in Badoo, the largest dating site with over 450 million users. He is also the lead instructor at ideai.io, a company specialized in Reinforcement Learning, Deep Learning and Machine Learning training. More details on the workshops can be found here. Abstract: Extracting knowledge from text data has always been one of the most researched topics in machine learning, but only recently we witnessed breakthroughs that put NLP on the spotlight. Many pieces of information are stored in unstructured data, like text, that is extremely important in many different fields, from finance to social media and e-commerce. In this course we will go through Natural Language Processing fundamentals, such as pre-processing techniques, tf-idf, embeddings, and more. It will be followed by practical coding examples, in python, to teach how to apply the theory to real use cases. The goal of this workshop is to provide the attendees all the basic tools and knowledge they need to solve real problems, and understand the most recent and advanced NLP topics. You will learn during the course: ● Understand NLP basics ● Create an NLP pipeline to preprocess the data using python ● Perform topic modeling ● Use python libraries for NLP tasks, in particular, NLTK, Gensim and Glove ● Leverage transfer learning and text embeddings to perform NLP classification Prerequisite: We will be using python in all exercises therefore some python knowledge is required. Some machine learning knowledge is beneficial but not required. We will introduce all the basic concepts needed but without spending much time on the most basic ML concepts. • Get free access to more talks/trainings like this at AI+ Training platform: https://aiplus.odsc.com/ • Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/OPENDATASCI • Twitter: https://twitter.com/odsc & @odsc • LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/company/open-data-science • Slack Channel: http://bit.ly/2RkOf9l • Europe Conference 17th–19th Sept 2020: https://odsc.com/europe/ • West Conference Oct 27th – 30th, 2020: https://odsc.com/california/ • Code of conduct: https://odsc.com/code-of-conduct/
We want to invite you to participate in the FREE ODSC Webinar “Data driven insights with SQL Server Big Data Clusters and OpenShift Kubernetes Platform”! Big Data Clusters (BDC) is a new set of capabilities introduced in SQL Server 2019 to help achieve data driven business insights from the high-value relational data, and high-volume big data. With BDC, organizations can run containerized Apache Spark and Hadoop Data File System (HDFS) natively as part of SQL Server 2019, in addition to running relational databases, Microsoft Machine Learning capabilities, and Polybase data virtualization. BDC requires Linux containers and Kubernetes, and recently Red Hat OpenShift was added as a commercially supported Kubernetes platform for BDC. OpenShift helps achieve the desired agility, consistency, flexibility, scalability, portability, etc. for data science and application development workflows. In this session, you will learn about the data analytics market, BDC and OpenShift architecture, key capabilities, use cases, joint value proposition, and technical resources to get you up to speed. Date: August 5 Time: 1 pm - 2 pm EDT To access this webinar, please register here: https://aiplus.odsc.com/courses/data-driven-insights-with-sql-server-big-data-clusters-and-openshift-kubernetes-platform The webinar will be presented by Mihaela Blendea, Senior Program Manager in SQL Server team at Microsoft and Tushar Katarki, Sr. Principal Product Manager at RedHat. Mihaela is a Senior Program Manager in SQL Server team. She has been working in the team for many years on Azure SQL, SQL Server on Linux, on multiple features across the SQL Server stack. For the past couple of years she focused on SQL Server running in containers and enabling Big Data Clusters capabilities on top of Kubernetes. Tushar Katarki is a senior technology professional with experience in cloud architecture, product management and engineering. He is currently at Red Hat as a product manager for OpenShift and the lead for Machine Learning on OpenShift. Prior to the current role, Tushar has been a product manager and a developer at Red Hat, Oracle (Sun Microsystems), Polycom, Sycamore Networks and Percona. Tushar has a MBA from Babson College and MS in Computer Science from University at Buffalo.

To access this webinar, please register here: https://aiplus.odsc.com/courses/how-to-build-smart-matching-with-nlp Topic: How to Build Smart Matching with NLP Abstract: Capably matching names and other personally identifiable information (PII) is critical to any effective compliance screening system: failure puts reputation, finances, and ethics on the line. Unfortunately, globalization coupled with the economic impact of the pandemic is testing screening systems like never before. As applications pour in, these systems are being asked to process key identity data in a huge variety of languages at unprecedented volumes. If these critical systems can’t keep up, everyone loses. But no one has to. In How to Build Smart Matching with NLP, AI vet Steve Cohen will provide you with a clear roadmap for enhancing your screening systems with AI and NLP so you can cut false positives, reduce risk, and find bad actors during this crisis. You’ll learn how to: * Leverage NLP/AI to reduce false positives and improve accuracy in your screening * Effectively integrate NLP/AI in even legacy technology * Ensure the NLP/AI enhanced systems are explainable and compliant With over two decades of experience working with government agencies and banks around the world on their toughest screening problems, we will give you the insights you need to confidently handle KYC during this challenging period.
