In this bootcamp, we will cover how natural language processing (NLP) provides a foundation from which clustering, machine learning, classification, search engineering and graph databases make efficient sense of large volumes of data. We will bring together these various areas into a real world example to demonstrate the resulting synergy. We will define unstructured and structured data and how they form a holistic foundation from which to understand large amounts of complex data.

We will then learn how unstructured text data is structured so that it can be analyzed and assimilated with structured data. We will then learn how collections of documents can be summarized, clustered and classified for a deeper, high-level understanding of the documents and concepts embedded in them. Next, we will explore search engineering which allows efficient exploration of collections of documents. Finally, we will see how graph databases can help bring diverse text data into a coherent linking of the data collection where visualization is leveraged to help glean insights.
