The adoption of natural language processing (NLP) has grown and is expected to continue over the coming years with the adoption of more personal assistants, increased smartphone functionalities and the evolution of big data to automate even more routine human tasks. IT ProPortal brought this topic to us in their article, “Natural language processing, today and in the near future.”

It’s not just shiny new gadgets and smart home experiences anymore. Artificial intelligence (AI), which enables NLP, is seeping into every corner of our existence. Despite the fear mongering, AI isn’t going to take all our jobs or wipe out humanity. But it is making changes, from the playfully ridiculous to the life-changingly serious. In our homes, our businesses, and our personal lives.

Today, NLP is most commonly used in machine translation and cognitive search. NLP is also incredibly useful for organizations to analyse public sentiment about their companies. Sentiment analysis is the process of identifying human emotions derived from text within a social media post.
