eBook Description:

Natural Language Processing with Spark NLP: Learning to Understand Text at Scale

If you want to build an enterprise-quality application that uses natural language text but aren’t sure where to begin or what tools to use, this practical guide will help get you started. Alex Thomas, principal data scientist at Wisecube, shows software engineers and data scientists how to build scalable natural language processing (NLP) applications using deep learning and the Apache Spark NLP library.

In four sections, you’ll learn NLP basics and building blocks before diving into application and system building:

  • Basics: Understand the fundamentals of natural language processing, NLP on Apache Spark, and deep learning
  • Building blocks: Learn techniques for building NLP applications – including tokenization, sentence segmentation, and named-entity recognition – and discover how and why they work
  • Applications: Explore the design, development, and experimentation process for building your own NLP applications
  • Building NLP systems: Consider options for productionizing and deploying NLP models, including which human languages to support

Through concrete examples, practical and theoretical explanations, and hands-on exercises for using NLP on the Spark processing framework, this Natural Language Processing with Spark NLP book teaches you everything from basic linguistics and writing systems to sentiment analysis and search engines. You’ll also explore special concerns for developing text-based applications, such as performance.
