Mining Data from Text

  • Course level: All Levels


A large part of the appeal of deep learning models is their ability to work with unstructured data types such as text, images, and video. However such models are only as good as the feature vectors that they operate on.

In this course, Mining Data from Text, you will gain the ability to build highly optimized and efficient feature vectors from textual and document data. First, you will learn how to represent documents as numeric data using simple numeric identifiers for individual words as well as more elegant methods such as term frequency and inverse document frequency. Next, you will discover how to perform topic modeling using techniques such as latent semantic analysis, latent Dirichlet allocation, and non-negative matrix factorization. Finally, you will explore how to implement keyword extraction using a popular algorithm – RAKE. When you’re finished with this course, you will have the skills and knowledge to move on to build efficient and optimized feature vectors from a large document corpus and use those feature vectors in building powerful machine learning models.
