AI and Natural Language Workshop – Leeuwarden edition!

March 14, 2019  |  Meetup

IBM developer advocate, Damiaan Zwietering, is coming to House of Innovation Leeuwarden on 14th March to give you a hands-on workshop on AI and Natural Language. Damiaan has over 25 years of experience in AI. You don't want to miss this!

AI may make you forget to think for yourself. But take care, applying a great algorithm won't suddenly give you something useful out of bad data. Damiaan will show you what to look for and how to prepare. After that, your implementation needs to be monitored to prevent unwanted effects such as bias creeping in. The technology is available!

Then, for the hands-on part, we get a little more technical. If you want to get your first prototype up and running, there are many useful building blocks available to get you started quickly. After you have attended the workshop, you should understand how to:

  • Build a Watson Natural Language Classifier model using the web UI
  • Create a Node.js app that uses the NLC model to classify emails
  • Use Node-RED to build a prototype
