Description

This course introduces quantitative methods for understanding the vast amount of information and human knowledge that has been stored in the form of language data. This area is also known as computational linguistics or natural language processing.

This course introduces quantitative methods for understanding the vast amount of information and human knowledge that has been stored in the form of text data. Text Analytics is about deriving meaning from written documents. In this course you will learn how to analyse data from millions of documents - far too many to read them each individually. From novels to news articles, speeches to social media posts, movie subtitles to product reviews, you will learn how to collect diverse datasets and use them to answer questions from a large range of perspectives.
