Natural Language Processing (NLP)

what is natural language processing? Find the definition Here.

Natural language processing is a branch of AI that focuses specifically on distilling meaning from human language, be it spoken or written. 

Virtual assistants like Alexa and Siri use NLP to process their users’ commands. Online language translation tools use it to ensure consistent meaning between the input and the output. Google’s autocomplete feature uses it to predict your most likely intention based on the first few words of your search query. 

Contact centers are using NLP to understand what a customer is calling about so the best solution can be reached as quickly as possible.
