Sobre o curso

This course covers a wide range of tasks in Natural Language Processing from basic to advanced: sentiment analysis, summarization, dialogue state tracking, to name a few. Upon completing, you will be able to recognize NLP tasks in your day-to-day work, propose approaches, and judge what techniques are likely to work well. The final project is devoted to one of the most hot topics in today’s NLP. You will build your own conversational chat-bot that will assist with search on StackOverflow website. The project will be based on practical assignments of the course, that will give you hands-on experience with such tasks as text classification, named entities recognition, and duplicates detection. Throughout the lectures, we will aim at finding a balance between traditional and deep learning techniques in NLP and cover them in parallel. For example, we will discuss word alignment models in machine translation and see how similar it is to attention mechanism in encoder-decoder neural networks. Core techniques are not treated as black boxes. On the contrary, you will get in-depth understanding of what’s happening inside. To succeed in that, we expect your familiarity with the basics of linear algebra and probability theory, machine learning setup, and deep neural networks. Some materials are based on one-month-old papers and introduce you to the very state-of-the-art in NLP research....

Great thanks to this amazing course! I learned a lot on state-to-art natural language processing techniques! Really like your awesome programming assignments! See you HSE guys in next class!

Definitely best course in the Specialization! Lecturers, projects and forum - everything is super organized. Only StarSpace was pain in the ass, but I managed :)

I can't see anything educational in this course. I frustrated. Simple recitation of facts from NLP articles and nothing more. Programming projects are disconnected from videos., i.e, upon watching video don't expect to understand how to complete a programming project or at least to understand what you have to do in order to pass the assignment. This course is the worst I have ever seen on Coursera.

A lot of information on a very high level but with reference to papers. Papers are a little bit dated for now, but this is due to rapid progress of NLP as a field of study. Assignments which need to be peer reviewed are painful, because you don't know when someone will check your work. This is due to not many learners simultaneously at class. In general, the course provides helpful advice when working with NLP and reveals some of the core approaches. Also, there is enough practice here, which is great.

The course is very poorly explained, in comparison with other similar ones in Coursera.

Unless you have already some knowledge on the matter, it's pretty difficult to learn it just by watching the course's videos.

Terrible final project realization. You use telegram to deploy your conversational bot, which shuts you off if you don't have people chatting with it for too long. And that can happen if nobody reviews your project for days and weeks. I give this course a one star, as this kind of thing is just unacceptable from my perspective, and I can elaborate why. You've taken my money for waiting more than a month for reviews, only to find out I did not pass because my bot shut down. I'm sorry, but I won't take another course from you again. Goodbye.

Useful videos and assignments, although some are very unclear. The last assignment has really bad documentation of what everything is actually doing and it includes setting up a ubuntu instance on AWS, chat bot on telegram and tons of other stuff, and there are very vague explanations of how everything is linked together. But in the end when everything was done, i felt like ive learned a lot, including things out of the scope of teh course.

This is the most rigorous NLP course that I could find on Coursera or any other MOOC provider. A thorough introduction to both classical and NN models for a variety of NLP problems and tasks, drawing upon recently published articles.

The quizzes and programming exercises do at times exceed the content covered in the lectures, but if one does not mind supplementing the lecture content with self-study/problem solving, then this is not so much an issue.

The main suggestion that I would give is to reduce the numbe of peer-graded assignments (there were 3 in the span of this 5-week course). The peer grading component is time-consuming and error-prone.

Very good advanced course on NLP covering both statistical and deep learning modeling approaches. Very well cemented by programming assignments in python and real-world acht bot application using Telegram and Amazon Web Services free tier solution. Check the pre-requisites because this is an advanced course requiring some previous knowledge of NLP, linguistics, machine learning, deep learning and above all python programming and some AWS and Docker basic knowledge. Staff is very responsive and supportive on the forum. Finally, don't underestimate the time it takes to go through all videos, quizzes, and programming assignments -the guidance given is on the low end.

Are you kidding me? What are you talking about in courses? I have to re-study everything after each video because it just doesn't help you understand the theories at all.

Very good course with tough assignments. Expect to take more time to digest the material on the video and work on the assignments

Deadline passed, no review. I submitted my Honors assignment 8 hours before the submission deadline, exactly when I was supposed to in order to ensure a peer review. I performed reviews on a number of other students' works, as required. Yet my work remains unreviewed, many hours of effort wasted. Maybe I did learn from this class, but I definitely can't call it a pleasant experience.

Great introduction to NLP. But NLP is too huge topic so need to study more about this when really want to work at company.

Anna is a great instructor. She can explain the concept and mathematical formulas in a clear way. The design of assignment is both interesting and practical.

Very interesting, qquite advanced and you need to invest time for the assignments, but worth it in my opinion

The course instructors do a bad job of explaining the basic concepts for anything in the Week 1 itself. They are inclined towards using jargons form the field, providing no context of basis of using the different algorithms or concepts. This course is probably, only, suitable for people who need a quick refresher on something they already know very well. I will not recommend this course if your aim is to LEARN NLP.

Overall great intro to NLP. Basic techniques like word embeddings and attention are explained quite well. However, some topics are not really easy to remember from this course, such as Topic modeling using LDA (which I understood much deeper during Bayesian Methods for Machine Learning course from the same specialization).

Shallow theoretical explanations (just mentions and references). Disconnected assignments from theory.

The course was great. Perhaps it'd be nice to combine the lower level with some higher level Deep Learning framework at the end. Thanks!

This was a good class, and I want to give it more stars, but the default path for completing the final project requires far more time than the course specifies, making it difficult to properly manage one's time.

The course is very nice. I wish there were some more examples in slides to understand the working of algorithms. Maybe its advance that's why I felt it.

If notes of every week were available then it would have been very beneficial.

It has less content on abstractive summarization.
