Its all about TEXT

Last week, we held the AI-ML Virtual forum of IsraelClouds and Ai-Blog, collaborating with IBM.

During the Forum, we heard two very interesting lectures. The first one was about Q-Learning for Beginners and the second was about practical and hands-on  method of Reinforcement Q-Learning using Jupyter Notebook on the IBM Cloud

In the first session, Tal Neeman, Developer Advocate, IBM, conducted a live Hands-on tutorial. Tal explained about the basics of Watson services that can provide the participants tools to analyze text in few lines of code. In addition, Tal spoke about 3 services that can help you get the most from your text:

1) Watson Natural Language Understanding - Cloud native product that uses deep learning to extract metadata from text such as entities, keywords, categories, sentiment, emotion, relations, and syntax.

2) Watson Discovery - Enterprise search and AI search technology that breaks open data silos and retrieves specific answers to your questions while analyzing trends and relationships buried in enterprise data. Watson Discovery applies the latest breakthroughs in machine learning, including natural language processing capabilities, and is easily trained on the language of your domain. Unlike competitors, Watson Discovery can be deployed on any cloud or on-premises environment.

3) Watson Knowledge Studio can help you teach Watson the language of your domain.

In the second Session, Tal Eden, Chief data Scientist, and former Chief Data Scientist, the Sheba Innovation Center, reviewed few methods for mathematical representation of words and texts, while he focused on a specific method of word embedding, Word2Vec. Also, Tal explained about the algorithmic and mathematical foundation behind Word2Vec, and went over a simple implementation example with Gensim, a python package for topic modeling.
