Natural Language Processing
Use Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning to understand text and spoken words in a similar way to humans.
Natural Language Processing(NLP) aims to make human communication such as the spoken word or written text understandable to the machine. Making the Artificial Intelligence model capable of understanding, analyzing, and extracting meaning from text and speech.
Ways NLP is used today

    This comes in handy in situations such as wanting to analyze customer feedback.
  • Text Generation
    This is called Natural Language Generation (NLG) and is a subfield of NLP. The goal is to be able to automatically produce all kinds of texts in natural language by using a semantic representation as input.
