Understand and implement word2vec Understand the CBOW method in word2vec Understand the skip-gram method in word2vec Understand the negative sampling optimization in word2vec Understand and implement GloVe using gradient descent and alternating least squares Use recurrent neural networks for parts-of-speech tagging Use recurrent neural networks for named entity recognition Understand and implement recursive neural networks for sentiment analysis Understand and implement recursive neural tensor networks for sentiment analysis Install Numpy, Matplotlib, Sci-Kit Learn, Theano, and TensorFlow (should be extremely easy by now) Understand backpropagation and gradient descent, be able to derive and code the equations on your own Code a recurrent neural network from basic primitives in Theano (or Tensorflow), especially the scan function Code a feedforward neural network in Theano (or Tensorflow) Helpful to have experience with tree algorithms In this course we are going to look at advanced NLP. Previously, you learned about some of the basics, like how many NLP problems are just regular machine learning and data science problems in disguise, and simple, practical methods like bag-of-words and term-document matrices. These allowed us to do some pretty cool things, like detect spam emails, write poetry, spin articles, and group together similar words. In this course I'm going to show you how to do even more awesome things. We'll learn not just 1, but 4 new architectures in this course.
