Intro to Natural Language Processing with Python

This workshop will provide a quick overview of natural language processing using Python. We’ll cover the basics. Segmenting text into tokens, assigning part-of-speech, assigning dependency labels, detecting and labeling named-entities. We’ll also cover sentiment...

Parallel Processing with Python

Modern computers have a CPU with multiple cores (usually between 4-8). Come learn how to take advantage of them to parallelize and speed up your code. We’ll show you how to structure your code so you can parallelize it in 5 lines or less. We will also cover some...

Regular Expressions II

Regular expressions are perfectly suited for people who like puzzles. Regular expressions are a sequence of characters used to define a search pattern. They are commonly used to do “find” and “find and replace” string operations. They are also used to validate strings...

Web Scraping with Python

This workshop will provide an overview of how to scrape data from html pages and website APIs using Python. This will mostly be accomplished using the requests, beautifulsoup, and retry modules with the browser developer tools. The workshop is intended for users with...

Introduction to Deep Neural Networks with Keras/TensorFlow

Deep Neural Networks (DNNs) are used as a machine learning method for both regression and classification problems. Keras is a high-level, Python interface running on top of multiple neural network libraries, including the popular library TensorFlow. In this workshop,...

Introduction to NumPy (Python)

This workshop will introduce you to the NumPy library in Python, which is useful in scientific computing. We will cover NumPy’s n-dimensional array object and associated functions in depth, along with related linear algebra and random number capabilities. Some...
