In this new video series, data science instructor Vincent Warmerdam gets started with spaCy, an open-source library for Natural Language Processing in Python. His mission: building a system to automatically detect programming languages in large volumes of text. Follow his process from the first idea to a prototype all the way to data collection and training a statistical named entity recogntion model from scratch.
