Hands-on Training & Certification for Data Scientists on John Snow Labs’ Medical NLP & LLM libraries and models

Event Description

This full-day, in-person, hands-on workshop for practicing data scientists will enable you the use core capabilities of John Snow Labs’ Medical NLP & LLM software. You will run live Python notebooks that walk through clinical entity recognition, negation detection, relation extraction, entity resolution, de-identification, summarization, and question-answering.

The day includes an overview of current benchmarks, the state-of-the-art for common LLM & NLP tasks, and tuning your own models. An overview of the 2,000+ available models will be provided, including specialty-specific models (oncology, radiology, mental health) and models tuned for different types of medical text (clinical notes, biomedical research, voice of the patient).

This workshop is conducted by John Snow Labs’ Head of Data Science and includes meals, breaks, and networking time – so you’ll also have time to ask questions about your specific projects. Participants will also get access to the full set videos covering the material for the ‘Healthcare NLP for Data Scientists’ certification exam and a pass to take the exam and get certified.
