Description

What is NLP [Natural Language processing]

NLP analysis offers the ability to tap into this source of information and derive meaning from both written and verbal communication. Being able to accurately analyze this fast-growing amounts of data leads to more accurate insights into human behavior, especially when combined with other structured data. Many companies use NLP technology to improve the success of sales calls. Health care professionals use it to diagnose symptoms quicker and provide better treatment. Others use it to improve their customer service through an understanding of what their customers like or dislike.




Description of the event

There is a huge increase in the volume of unstructured data, especially with the emergence of platforms that mainly rely on user-generated content. Text data that contains valuable information about the users and their opinions has become widely available. Digital revolution has underlined email as our main form of communication and things such as newspaper articles, medical records or surveys are being stored as digital files. All of these present a great and unique source of information, impossible to uncover without a specific skill set and technology.

Without text analytics, businesses are missing out on this unique source of information. We have therefore joined the forces with Geneea, experts in this field, to introduce you to Natural Language Processing (NLP) and show you how to use the methodology in day-to-day business to solve industry specific problems.
