Everyone has heard the term ‘natural language processing or NLP. So, what is natural language processing, exactly, and how can it help your business? NLP allows a program or software to understand language as written/spoken by humans so that people can interact with a system without using long strings of code. You use natural language processing every day when you engage with your word processing software to perform spell check, when your smart phone auto-corrects your words, when you use voice to text messaging, when your email system applies a spam filter, when you are served keywords that relate to a search you did on a search engine and when you use ‘assistants’ like Siri or Alexa.
