Introducing Text Extensions for Pandas

Most areas of Python data science have standardized Pandas DataFrames for representing and manipulating structured data in memory.
Natural Language Processing, not so much.
In this presentation, we’ll explain why you should be using Pandas for NLP. DataFrames make every phase of NLP easier, from creating new models, to evaluating their effectiveness, to building applications that integrate those models. We’ll talk about our open source library, Text Extensions for Pandas (https://ibm.biz/text-extensions-for-pandas), which adds special data types and library integrations specifically geared to NLP use cases. We’ll explain how these extensions connect to some basic NLP concepts, and then we’ll finish with an example of using Pandas to build an NLP application.
