PyCon Philippines 2018: Introduction to the Natural Language Processing with Python


Primarily, this talk is intended to the enthusiasts of NLP who would like to grasp the basic concepts of NLP and the way of implementing NLP tasks using Python. Therefore, this tutorial does not only give the concept of NLP, but it also provides the practical side by using Python programming language. Python can do the basic tasks of NLP, but it can not handle the standard tasks of NLP. Therefore, a special library called the Natural Language Toolkit (NLTK) is needed to solve such problem. This library provides some functions, wrappers, and the corpora samples that could be used to support the NLP researches. By the end of this talk, hopefully the audience could get some insights on the basic concepts of NLP. Moreover, they could utilize NLTK for assisting their works.
