Fun With NLP (Natural Language Processing)

It’s no secret that every language is a complex beast to master. Even English, with its watered down Germanic grammar and extensive borrowings from Latin, will often befuddle the most learned of minds. Unsurprisingly, therefore, at least for now, computer programs are not yet entirely able to decode human language as most people can.

What may come as a surprise, however, is just how much our modern software is already capable of doing! In fact, in many new and exciting ways, Natural Language Processing (NLP), the subfield of artificial intelligence concerned with the interactions between computers and human languages, may completely revolutionise computing — so for this blog post in particular, you should probably sit upright!

What You Can Do with Artificial Intelligence Today

If you’re a regular blog reader, you’re probably already aware that when it comes to artificial intelligence, its current state of development is severely misunderstood. Sadly, however, this matter is not helped at all by the many cash-eying marketers who are still promoting the myth that you can purchase sentient tech products.

Take Oral B, for instance. The entire campaign for their Genius X toothbrush is based around the notion that it offers a full slate of quasi-magical AI features. Yet peel away the hype from what is actually objective fact and what users will be left with is an overpriced feedback system, talking a big game but with nothing to back up its claims.

Yes, true artificial intelligence, as it turns out, remains a developer’s pipe dream, as researchers are nowhere near full comprehension of the human mind.

But what then is the actual state of AI technology today — which really should be referred to as machine learning, by the way — and what should companies expect from the most probable future ahead? In this article, Software Planet Group will take a candid look.
