Introduction to Natural Language Processing

Online

Join ACENET for a brief introduction to Natural Language Processing (NLP). How do computers understand language? It seems impossible that zeroes and ones could ever add up to words that humans can understand, but machine language has come a long way in the past few years. Let us take you behind the code to explain how machines simulate language comprehension, and why it’s a far more complicated problem than “bonjour = hello”. This talk is aimed at an audience who is not necessarily familiar with computers or language comprehension, but would like a primer to the field, and what it can realistically do. We will explain natural language processing from the perspective of machines that cannot understand words, but capture semantic meaning by processing data. This session will take place on: Thursday, April 6th - 12:00pm - 3:00pm (Atlantic time) You do need to have a laptop with a Mac, Linux or Windows operating system (not a tablet, Chromebook, etc) on which you have administrative privileges, as you will need to pre-load specific software packages. Participants must register using their institutional / organizational email address (not a personal email, ie. gmail) Instructions for how to join will be sent out […]

Exploring opportunities in rural communities

Online

The urban-rural divide in Canada describes disadvantages for rural communities in terms of economic growth, population density, income distribution, career opportunities, quality of life, etc. Yet while the global pandemic resulted in unprecedented job loss in 2020, rural areas have seen the fastest overall employment recovery. Furthermore, while only 18% of the current population in Canada lives in rural areas, research conducted by Brookfield Institute for Innovation + Entrepreneurship predicts that rural areas will achieve rapid population growth in the coming years. As a result of COVID-19, employee and job seeker’s preferences are changing and Canadian’s are choosing greener spaces over big cities. This will foster rural communities with more diversity and lead to greater employment and training opportunities for the future of work. Join leaders as they share their personal and organizational experiences and learnings on how organizations and job seekers can identify and explore opportunities to build meaningful careers and work in rural communities: Tara Mascarenhas, Director of Programs, SOI Foundation To be Announced To be Announced Introduced by Luke Nixon-Janssen, Director, Marketing & Business Development, Magnet and moderated by Chantal Brine, CEO, EnPoint, we invite you to the next installment of the Building Future Ready Communities: Virtual […]
