The growth and success of the human race can be attributed to the ability to be able to communicate and connect through the power of various languages. We transfer large amounts of data through the spoken and written word. Our choice of words, tonality, and style further adds more information. Interpreting what we say and how we say even helps in understanding and predicting human behaviour. A person, in their lifetime, creates a large amount of data through exchanging their thoughts through language. To analyze this vast data, we need digital intervention.
This is where Natural Language Processing (NLP) enters the scene. Data generated through conversations, discussions, or even social media posts are unstructured, something that cannot be neatly tabulated through traditional tools. The revolution in Machine Learning allows computers to unlock the power of language using NLP.
Natural language processing enables machines to understand and interpret meaning from human languages. At the intersection of data science and human language, NLP is a fast-growing field of computer science. As data accessibility increases, so do the development application of the field.
