I’m thrilled to announce our new Natural Language Processing Specialization! Courses 1 and 2 are available on Coursera. We expect to release Courses 3 and 4 soon.
NLP is reshaping daily life. No doubt you’ve found valuable information using web search and the search functions found on countless websites and apps. Anti-spam systems are a critical part of the global email system. How does a smart speaker understand your commands? How does a chatbot generate relevant responses? This specialization will give you the foundation you need to understand such systems and the knowledge to build them yourself.
You will implement a sentiment analysis system, build models that translate human languages, and even construct a chatbot. You will master the most important NLP architectures including transformer networks, and you will receive practical, hands-on training to implement techniques like tokenizing text (turning words into features suitable for training neural networks or other machine learning algorithms).
The courses are taught by two wonderful instructors: Younes Bensouda Mourri, with whom I’ve had the pleasure of working for many years at Stanford, and Łukasz Kaiser, a member of the Google Brain team whom you might recognize as a co-author of TensorFlow.
I invite you to dive into the NLP Specialization and use the skills you gain to do amazing things.
