How natural language processing will revolutionise our daily lives
Natural Language Processing is a rapidly changing field that has revolutionised the way people access required information, how they communicate with each other, and how they interact with their electronic devices. NLP technology helps to protect our inboxes from spam messages, to analyse documents to detect plagiarism, and evaluates customer opinions to build market forecasts, among many other commercial applications. NLP-based applications are now an inseparable component of our everyday lives. Consistent decreases in computational costs and increases in the amount information available for processing have led to further commercial growth in this area, and produced a diverse range of products that rely on understanding human language. Rule-based systems are being replaced by statistically-based products, which provide improved performance when supplied with increasing amounts of data, and are less dependent on the type of information being analysed. By 2020, the market for NLP applications is expected to grow to $13.4 billion at a compound annual growth rate of 18.4%.
