About this courseSkip About this course
Natural language processing (NLP) is one of the most important technologies of the information age. Understanding complex language utterances is also a crucial part of artificial intelligence.
In this course, you will be given a thorough overviewof Natural Language Processing and how to use classic machine learning methods. You will learn about Statistical Machine Translation as well as Deep Semantic Similarity Models (DSSM) and their applications.
We will also discuss deep reinforcement learning techniques applied in NLP andVision-Language Multimodal Intelligence.
edX offers financial assistance for learners who want to earn Verified Certificates but who may not be able to pay the fee. To apply for financial assistance, enroll in the course, then follow this link to complete an application for assistance.
Note: These courses will retire in June. Please enroll only if you are able to finish your coursework in time.
