Working Abstract:

This half-day session will take participants through situations they might face applying Natural Language Processing to real-world problems. We’ll choose a canonical task (text classification) and focus on the main issue that faces practitioners in green fields projects --- where does the data come from? Our aim is to equip participants with the theoretical background and practical skills to quickly build high-quality text classification models.
