Text Analytics

Most of the world's data is not stored in neat rows and columns, but is hidden in plain text. This learning path will teach you about Information Extraction: how to automatically extract structured information from plain text such that it can be processed by machines. You will also learn how to tackle Information Extraction using a tool called SystemT.


Text Analytics is an integral part of  Natural Language Processing (NLP). This learning path introduces you to Text Analytics, specifically the process of extracting information out of unstructured text. Once extracted out of unstructured text, information can be used as part of your machine learning and artificial intelligence pipelines.  There is an introductory course and a more advanced course both focused on Information Extraction.

Come along and start your journey to receiving the following badges: Text Analytics – Level 1, Text Analytics – Level 2.
