June 17, 2017 Saturday, Analytics Vidhya has organised a LearnUp program at IIT-Madras. I had attended a couple of seminars conducted by UpGrad. This was the first time I am participating in workshop by the Analytics Vidhya Team.The program was done in two sessions with a small break between the sessions.
In the first sesssion , the Guest speaker was Karthikeyan Sankaran, an IIT Madras & IIM Calcutta Alumni. Karthikeyan has 16 years of experience in the area of Business Intellignece & Advanced analytics. He talked about the different techniques and tools available for Social Media analytics.
Second session is like a workshop where a Problem Statement is given and one of the Analytics Vidhya volunteer Karthikeyan Palanisamy has explained about deriving the solutions for the problem statement. Karthik has a great way of explaining the problem and the process to achive solution.
Things Learnt from the sessions:
- What is NLP and Why NLP ?
- Social Media Analytics and its use?
- what is Text Corpus?
- Exposure to DTM ,TF-IDF
- Dimentioanality Reduction Techniques like LSA and LDA.
- Knowledge on Continuos Bag of words – predicting the ‘word’ given the ‘content’
- Knowledge on Skipgram- predicting the ‘Content’ given the ‘word’
- Solving the problem statement using R.
I was very much surprised to meet Sudalai RajKumar a Kaggle Grandmaster popularly known as SRK . SRK is also One of Top 10 Data Scientist’s in India selected by the Analytics India Magazine. He is one of the speakers of DataHack Summit – 2017 , an intitative by Analytics Vidhya to bring all the finest Data Scientists all over the India which is going to be held on 9 – 11 November, 2017 at Bengaluru.
Finally I would like to thank Analytics Vidhya Team for making such great efforts .
