We currently do not have fixed office hours, so please contact us by mail to get an appointment.
The lecture offers an introduction into the perspectives, problems, methods and techniques of text technology. All examples and tutorials are based on the programming language Python.
- Natural language processing (NLP)
- Tokenization and segmentation
- Part-of-Speech tagging
- Creating and using text corpora
- Statistical analysis
- Syntactic analysis
- Machine Learning
- Categorization and classification
- Information extraction
- Introduction to Python
- Structured programming
- Data structures and IO
- NLTK library for NLP
- Usage of further libraries such as scikit-learn
The course is based on the Python programming language together with an open source library called the Natural Language Toolkit (NLTK). NLTK allows explorative and problem-solving learning of theoretical concepts without the requirement of extensive programming knowledge.
The course assumes familiarity with basic computing concepts, but will not assume any knowledge of the Python language, which will be acquired during the course. If you like to work with your own notebook, we kindly ask you to follow the installation instructions given at . http://www.nltk.org/data.html
What you can expect from us:
- problem-based and explorative learning
- stimulating environment
- interactive lecture
What we expect from you:
- active participation
If you like to have a jump start on NLTK, have a look at the video below.
