GETTING STARTED WITH NATURAL LANGUAGE PROCESSING IN YOUR ENTERPRISE
NLP is a necessary enterprise discipline today. Understanding the challenges and possibilities will help you harness this discipline for your language applications.
Natural language processing (NLP) is poised to make major advances in enterprise applications. No longer is this an arcane art continually pushed off due to its difficulty. Today, NLP is beginning to be woven into larger projects as a component for receiving input as language or generating output as language. Enterprise NLP applications include customer service, reputation management, personalized advertising, and market/product intelligence.
NLP is the study of the computational treatment of natural language. It consists of text analysis, which is the process of deriving meaningful information from natural language, and artificial intelligence-based methods of communicating better intelligence using the natural language.
