Abstract: With notable innovations like Alexa and Siri becoming a part of our daily lives, there is a growing appreciation for Natural language Processing (NLP) as it is no longer a nascent facet of AI technology. From sentiment analysis techniques in retail to named entity recognition and virtual assistants in financial markets, NLP is attaining relevance across various industries.
Latest notable NLP trends such as multimodal language models, NLP libraries, transfer learning among various others are enabling enterprises to accelerate their NLP deployments and gain valuable insights for critical business decisions. Companies such as Google, use NLP for various functions ranging from autocorrection, smart search, language translation to email classification. Similarly, Quora employs NLP to deduct the frequency of repetitive questions with duplicate detection techniques.
According to recent research, the global NLP market size is expected to reach $35.1 billion by 2026. The reason is the significant shift from human-computer interaction to human-computer conversation. With AI-powered interfaces augmented with NLP, enterprises now have the ability to drive business growth with unprecedented technological advancements. However, in the vein of understanding the full scope of NLP, enterprises must be mindful of unsupervised models that generate biased outcomes and hinder the capabilities of NLP mechanisms.
