Natural Language Processing (NLP)

What is natural language processing?

Natural language processing is a subfield of data science. Its main task is to allow computers to understand human language. NLP combines machine learning and linguistics to create real-world applications that can make our lives significantly easier.

Why is it important?

With vast amounts of data generated and most of it being text data, natural language processing is becoming more and more critical for processing this data. It then creates tremendous opportunities: from translation to personal assistance.
