AI for Text, NLP, and Forecasting


Course Number: PYTH-156

Duration: 3 days (19.5 hours)

Format: Live, hands-on

AI for Text, NLP, and Forecasting Training Overview

This live, online Artificial Intelligence (AI) For Text, NLP, and Forecasting training course teaches attendees how to build Recurrent Neural Networks (RNNs) and Long Short-Term Memory networks (LSTMs) to apply sequence models to natural language processing (NLP). Participants learn how to implement these models from the ground up using Keras/TensorFlow by initially building a shallow neural network and then progressing to Deep Learning (DL) architectures.

Location and Pricing

This course is taught as a private, live online class for teams of 3 or more. All our courses are hands-on, instructor-led, and tailored to fit your group’s goals and needs. Most Accelebrate classes can be flexibly scheduled for your group, including delivery in half-day segments across a week or set of weeks. To receive a customized proposal and price quote for online corporate training, please contact us.

In addition, some Programming courses are available as live, online classes for individuals.
