Extracting Names using RNNs - PyData Singapore

Published on: Tuesday, 24 January 2017

Speaker: Martin Andrews


Martin's current day-job involved processing text - and this talk shows how Deep Learning techniques (word embeddings and recurrent neural networks) can be applied to text. It will include a walk-through of a working Jupyter notebook (which people can follow along with using a VirtualBox Appliance that will be circulated at the event).


Martin Andrews has a PhD in Machine Learning, and has been an Open Source developer since 1999. After a career in finance (based in London and New York), he decided to follow his original passion, and now works on Machine Learning / Artificial Intelligence full-time. Martin has given several talks and workshops on Deep Learning over the last 12 months, including FOSSIA, PyConSG, DataScienceSG and at the Fifth Elephant conference (in India).
