Natural Language Processing
Advance your career as a Natural Language Processing expert
Classes start in
Study 10-15 hrs/week and complete in 3 months.
Over the course of this program, you’ll become an expert in the main components of Natural Language Processing, including speech recognition, sentiment analysis, and machine translation. You’ll learn to code probabilistic and deep learning models, train them on real data, and build a career-ready portfolio as an NLP expert!
Natural Language Processing is at the center of the AI revolution, as it provides a tool for humans to communicate with computers effectively. The industry is hungry for highly-skilled specialists, and you’ll begin making an impact right away.
Master Natural Language Processing techniques with the goal of applying those techniques immediately to real-world challenges and opportunities. This is efficient learning for the innovative and career-minded professional AI engineer.
You’ll learn how to build and code natural language processing and speech recognition models in Python. You’ll complete three major natural language processing projects, and build a strong portfolio in the process.
The most effective way to learn is by having your code and solutions analyzed by AI experts who will give you powerful feedback in order to improve your understanding.
