Natural Language Processing with SAS®: Special Collection
Foreword by Katie Tedrow
Natural Language Processing (NLP) is a branch of artificial intelligence that helps computers understand, interpret, and emulate written or spoken human language. NLP draws from many disciplines including human-generated linguistic rules, machine learning, and deep learning to fill the gap between human communication and machine understanding. The papers included in this special collection demonstrate how NLP can be used to scale the human act of reading, organizing, and quantifying text data.
