Spark NLP & LLM for Data Scientists
Preparing & Enriching Data for Generative AI

This two-day workshop will walk you through building state-of-the-art Generative AI and Natural Language Processing (NLP) using John Snow Labs’ open-source libraries. This is a hands-on workshop for data scientists that will enable you to write and run live Python notebooks that put the technology to work.

The first day covers the open-source Spark NLP library for information extraction at scale – including reusing, training, and combining AI models for tasks like named entity recognition, text classification, spelling & grammar correction, question answering, knowledge extraction, sentiment analysis and more. The second day focuses on libraries and integrations specifically for preparing data for RAG LLM solutions, including document splitting, cleaning, metadata enrichment, summarization, and embeddings calculation.

The workshop is organized in two four-hour-long sessions, each followed by self-guided coding, on Python notebooks relevant to each section. This is a live online workshop whose instructors are current lead contributors to the John Snow Labs open-source codebase. A certification of expertise is provided to attendees who pass a final online exam.

Healthcare NLP & LLM for Data Scientists
Hands-on Generative AI for Healthcare

This two-day workshop for practicing data scientists will enable you to use and extend John Snow Labs’ Healthcare NLP & LLM library. You will run live Python notebooks that walk through clinical entity recognition, entity resolution (mapping entities to medical codes), assertion status detection (i.e. negation detection), relation extraction, and de-identification. You will also learn how to train and tune your own models and how to choose which pre-trained models to start from.

The second day is focused on medical language models and will teach you how to make use of the medical text summarization, question answering, and text generation LLMs. It will also cover improving the accuracy of RAG LLM solutions that process medical documents by using healthcare-specific document splitting, enrichment, and embedding algorithms.

The workshop is organized in two four-hour-long sessions, each followed by self-guided coding. This is a live online workshop whose instructors are current lead contributors to the Healthcare NLP & LLM codebase.

Natural Language Processing for Business Leaders
Training

Like any other technology, Natural Language Processing (NLP) requires business, product, and design leaders to understand what it can and cannot do – so that they can understand what opportunities it holds for improving their customers’ experience and bottom line with a solid ROI.

This five-hour live online workshop presents key concepts in NLP such as named entity recognition, document classification, transformers, pipelines, training, and annotation – but through the lens of real-world projects that got from concepts to production systems. The content is organized as a series of case studies, each starting with a business use case, diving into the solution architecture, explaining how NLP played part in the solution, and ends with best practices and lessons learned.

The instructor is a seasoned technology executive and NLP expert who oversaw the construction & operations of dozens of AI & NLP systems, and will be available for questions during and after the workshop.

Hear from students

Spark NLP

I really appreciate their team’s willingness to help and am amazed by what can be done using Spark NLP!

Angelina Leigh, Hitachi Data Systems
Spark NLP

John Snow Labs Spark NLP training was well organized and easy to follow, I enjoyed that the sessions were focused on coding but also included a more general overview of the process. In addition to the webinar training, many resources were made available to participants which was very helpful in taking the certification exam.

Sarah Gans, Whiteswan
Spark NLP

The Spark NLP training sessions covered an astonishing amount of material and have been a valuable resource for me to come back to whenever I am unsure of an implementation. John Snow Labs clearly put a great deal of effort into creating a broad ranging curriculum that builds upon previous lessons, while still emphasizing how simple it is to create a complex pipeline with Spark NLP.

***

The instructor was attentive to questions and feedback during and after the session, and the certification exam that followed challenged me to think and dig deeper than just the surface of the course material. I highly recommend this course to anyone who is new to Spark NLP or to those who want to bolster their confidence in working with it.
