This hands-on deep-dive session uses the open-source Apache Spark NLP library to explore advanced NLP in Python. Apache Spark NLP provides state-of-the-art accuracy, speed, and scalability for language understanding by delivering production-grade implementations of some of the most recent research in applied deep learning. Apache Spark NLP is the only open-source NLP library that can natively scale to use any Apache Spark cluster, as well as take advantage of the latest processors from Intel and Nvidia. It’s the most widely used NLP library in the enterprise today.

You’ll edit and run executable Python notebooks as we walk through these common NLP tasks: document classification, named entity recognition, sentiment analysis, spell checking and correction, grammar understanding, question answering, and translation. The discussion of each NLP task includes the latest advances in deep learning and transfer learning used to tackle it – from the hundreds of BERT-based embeddings to models based on the T5 transformer, MarianNMT, multilingual and domain-specific models.
