Dr. Annie Lee, Machine Learning Instructor

In the last decade, the accessibility of the vast computational power has allowed machine learning techniques to analyze large amounts of data such as text. Text is an essential mode of human communication that can be found everywhere, from social networks and forums to financial and medical documents. This Open Class will introduce learners to applications of supervised classification using text (called text classification). We will introduce practical applications from the real-world and walk-through a piece of python code central to the machine learning pipeline.”
