Visualising Text - A Beginner's Journey.

15th August 2017 in London at CodeNode

There are 1 other SkillsCast available from Context in the Information Age and Visualising Text

The important of analysing written documents is growing rapidly. Join Mark Wilcock as he tell us about his experiences in text mining with examples from financial documents!

The analysis of written documents is rapidly growing in importance - not just of social media but also for legal, academic and financial documents. Many of us, including myself, are familiar with analysing and visualising quantitative tabular data but not text. This session presents a case study which is my first foray into text mining. We'll analyse a few financial documents then visualise the results in a variety of tools; R, Tableau and Power BI.

Mark Wilcock

Mark Wilcock is a lazy data scientist. He likes talking with clients, understanding the business issues and exploring the data but gets bored with data munging. So all the tools he uses are practical and easy to master. Mark runs London Business Analytics Group, a popular, active meetup. He has an MA In Natural Science from Cambridge University and a MBA from Imperial College, London and is a Microsoft MVP on the Data Platform.
