Natural Language Processing and Machine Learning with EnCog

Morten Mjelde

Half-day workshop - in English

The goal of this workshop is to introduce the participant to some basic machine learning and natural language processing concepts.

We will use the EnCog framework to tackle a text classification problem, and see how to quickly get started on training and verifying an artificial neural network. The workshop will involve collecting and processing language data from different sources, and then training the artificial neural network to identify the source of a small sample. Various techniques can be testet to see what gives better results.

Primarily for: C# and Java developers. No prior knowledge of machine learning or natural language processing is needed.

Participant requirements: A laptop set up for either C# or Java development. The presentation will be in English, but the data used will be in Norwegian. Knowledge of the Norwegian language will be useful, but we will try to accommodate non-Norwegian speakers.
