About the Course

This course will introduce the learner to text mining and text manipulation basics. The course begins with an understanding of how text is handled by python, the structure of text both to the machine and to humans, and an overview of the nltk framework for manipulating text. The second week focuses on common manipulation needs, including regular expressions (searching for text), cleaning text, and preparing text for use by machine learning processes. The third week will apply basic natural language processing methods to text, and demonstrate how text classification is accomplished. The final week will explore more advanced methods for detecting the topics in documents and grouping them by similarity (topic modelling). This course should be taken after: Introduction to Data Science in Python, Applied Plotting, Charting & Data Representation in Python, and Applied Machine Learning in Python....

Lectures are very good with a perfect explanation. More than lectures I liked the assignment questions. They are worth doing. You will get to know the basic foundation of text mining. :-)

Excellent course! Video lectures are high quality, with realistic problems and applications. Exercises are reasonably challenging, and all quite fun to do! Strongly recommend this course

Very good course. A little bit heavy on in-built functions which hides what is happening underneath, but overall very good.

Great course, but expect to spend a lot of time on the assignments because of errors/bugs in the questions/autograder.

Good course. Most part of the learning comes from personal work on the assignments (time vastly underestimated)

The assignments are much harder than the slides, which means much more self-learning is required.

I will give it a 4 star because of the assignments. The lectures were good but were a bit short.

The final assignment is not well worded, and answer for the autograder is too strict.
