Natural Language Processing (NLP)

Natural Language Processing, or NLP, is like teaching computers to understand and speak human language. It’s a technology that allows machines to read, comprehend, and respond to human words, whether written or spoken.

Key Points

  • Human Language Understanding: NLP enables computers to interpret human language, recognizing words and their meanings, much like how we learn to understand and use language as children.

  • Communication Bridge: It acts as a bridge between human communication and computer understanding, allowing for interactions like asking a virtual assistant a question and getting a relevant response.

  • Varied Applications: NLP is used in many everyday technologies, such as spell checkers, language translation apps, chatbots, and voice-activated GPS systems.

  • Enhancing Technology: By understanding human language, NLP makes technology more accessible and user-friendly, allowing people to interact with machines in a natural and intuitive way.
