Natural language processing (NLP) is a branch of artificial intelligence (AI) that forms a bridge between machines i.e. computer and human languages. In simple words, NLP is the ability of a computer program to understand human language as it is express. Natural language processing mainly deals in processing, analyzing, and understanding the unstructured “big data” in order to operate effectively and proactively using natural human languages instead of computer languages.
Natural language processing has its root on deep learning that analyzes and makes use of patterns in data in order to improve a program's understanding. Deep learning models need huge amounts of labeled data to train on and to recognize relevant correlations. Further, assembling this kind of massive data set is one of the main hurdles to NLP currently.
NLP is used to simplify free text and make it analyzable. Another primary use case of NLP is sentiment analysis. With the help of sentiment analysis, data scientists can examine comments on social media platform to see how their business brand is executing.
