Apply Word Embeddings for Text Classification
Use 1D Convolutions as Feature Extractors for Text in NLP
Perform Binary Text Classification using Deep Learning with Keras
Welcome to this hands-on, guided introduction to Text Classification using 1D Convolutions with Keras. By the end of this project, you will be able to apply word embeddings for text classification, use 1D convolutions as feature extractors in natural language processing (NLP), and perform binary text classification using deep learning. As a case study, we will work on classifying a large number of Wikipedia comments as being either toxic or not (i.e. comments that are rude, disrespectful, or otherwise likely to make someone leave a discussion). This issue is especially important, given the conversations the global community and tech companies are having on content moderation, online harassment, and inclusivity. The data set we will use comes from the Toxic Comment Classification Challenge on Kaggle. To complete this guided project, we recommend that you have prior experience in Python programming, deep learning theory, and have used either Tensorflow or Keras to build deep learning models. We assume you have this foundational knowledge and want to learn how to use convolutions in NLP tasks such as classification. Note: This course works best for learners based in the North America region. We’re currently working on providing the same experience in other regions.

What will I get if I purchase a Guided Project?
By purchasing a Guided Project, you'll get everything you need to complete the Guided Project including access to a cloud desktop workspace through your web browser that contains the files and software you need to get started, plus step-by-step video instruction from a subject matter expert.
Are Guided Projects available on desktop and mobile?
Because your workspace contains a cloud desktop that is sized for a laptop or desktop computer, Guided Projects are not available on your mobile device.
Who are the instructors for Guided Projects?
Guided Project instructors are subject matter experts who have experience in the skill, tool or domain of their project and are passionate about sharing their knowledge to impact millions of learners around the world.
Can I download the work from my Guided Project after I complete it?
You can download and keep any of your created files from the Guided Project. To do so, you can use the “File Browser” feature while you are accessing your cloud desktop.
What is the refund policy?
Is financial aid available?
Financial aid is not available for Guided Projects.
Can I audit a Guided Project and watch the video portion for free?
Auditing is not available for Guided Projects.
How much experience do I need to do this Guided Project?
At the top of the page, you can press on the experience level for this Guided Project to view any knowledge prerequisites. For every level of Guided Project, your instructor will walk you through step-by-step.
Can I complete this Guided Project right through my web browser, instead of installing special software?
Yes, everything you need to complete your Guided Project will be available in a cloud desktop that is available in your browser.
What is the learning experience like with Guided Projects?
You'll learn by doing through completing tasks in a split-screen environment directly in your browser. On the left side of the screen, you'll complete the task in your workspace. On the right side of the screen, you'll watch an instructor walk you through the project, step-by-step.
