using nlp for entity detection

Using NLP for Entity Detection in Parsed HTML

Web scraping for developers, live presentation
26 August, 2:10PM BST, 40min

During this presentation, we will have a look at NLP tools for parsing free text for the purpose of extracting certain patterns that help us better understand the information we have. Similarly to how regular expressions work on character strings, certain NLP tools offer the possibility of searching for words and part of speech patterns. This is useful when looking to understand, for example, if a price is per unit, or for the whole box, or if a company is providing a specific type of service, or has a presence in a certain geographic area.

Join this session, if you:

  • Run web scraping projects

  • Work with parsed HTML

  • Need to identify various entities in parsed HTML

Please note: The views expressed by speakers or moderators are those of the speaker or moderators and not, necessarily, of Oxylabs or other respective organizations. Before engaging in scraping activities of any kind, you should consult your legal advisors.

Keep up with the future of web scraping
