“Every once in a while you come across an online course that nearly perfectly distills a topic, somehow making it relatively simple and digestible while still managing to provide a very comprehensive and thorough overview. This has definitely been one of those courses for me and I've really been enjoying it. Thank you very much!”
Get a solid grounding in NLP from 15 modules of content covering everything from the very basics to today's advanced models and techniques.
Start from raw data and learn to build classifiers, taggers, language models, translators, and more through nine fully-documented notebooks. Get exposure to a wide variety of tools and code you can use in your own projects.
“The only one-stop course you need to learn NLP. Seriously. Nate makes the hard topics easy to understand and provides a very thorough walk-through of implementing it practically with very well-documented notebooks. I’ve seen lots of courses on NLP and this is by far one of the best ones out there. If you are a data scientist or someone who's interested in NLP I highly recommend it!”
What you'll learn
“I originally found this course because I was looking for a way to learn NLP in a real way. I had some knowledge of the algorithms and I wanted to know what libraries and strategies I can use, instead of implementing TfIdf from scratch. Nate's approach is brilliant, first he gives you a very clear overview and then he guides you through the exercises but it's up to you to figure it out. I have to say it's an amazing course and it's really priceless.”
Why I built this course
Hi, I'm Nate. I made NLP Demystified because it's the course I wish I'd had when I started learning NLP.
NLP Demystified leans into the theory without being overwhelming but also provides practical know-how. We'll dive deep into concepts and algorithms, then put knowledge into practice through code. We'll learn how to perform practical NLP tasks and cover data preparation, model training and testing, and various popular tools.
In the end, you'll clearly understand how things work under the hood, acquire a relevant skillset, and be ready to participate in this exciting new age.
I found the course on YouTube and I was pleasantly surprised by how good it is. The videos and notebooks are straightforward and easy to follow, and the materials point me to the right direction if I want to research more thoroughly. I would absolutely recommend it to anyone who's interested in NLP, at all skill levels.
Nate's course makes NLP intuitively clear to students and practitioners alike – balancing breadth with detail, and theory with practice. I've recommended the course to several colleagues getting into NLP and AI in general.
Love the visuals! Love the notebooks at the end of each video! The best thing is that it is not too simple and at the same time not too verbose. It goes straight to the point. Love it!
Nate is an excellent communicator, and I wish he had been my lecturer when I was taking machine learning courses at university.
Nate's course made it all finally click for me. It explains just enough theory in a clear way, then connects to code that applies it all. If you're looking for a solid foundation in NLP, this is it.
You weren't kidding when you said "Demystified!" Now that I've written my own neural net from scratch, I'll never think of it as a "black box" again!
“I love your clear and succinct explanations.”
“I can't express how great this series on NLP is. Every video is like a Christmas present.”
“This is a brilliant way to explain these difficult topics.”
“This is amazing, I can’t thank you enough. I only wish this was around sooner.”
“The explanation and illustrations are amazing!”
