GAINING INSIGHTS AND LEVERAGING RESOURCES with NATURAL LANGUAGE PROCESSING – by Andrew Williams
New data technologies are pervasive in our lives, at work, at home and everywhere in-between. Wouldn’t you like to leverage the same powers that Alexa uses in your work? Using these tools is more accessible than you might think and help drive efficiency and alignment.
In this session we will understand what Natural Language Processing is, and where you find it. We will do some simple, instructor-led, guided hands-on coding – if you can cut and paste, you’ll be able to do this coding exercise! This will help you understand how you or colleagues could leverage this technology. The group will brainstorm the pros, and cons, of NLP and where else it could be applied in organizational design.
