About the Webinar

Natural language processing (NLP) - once on the frontier of AI as a research topic with maddeningly low accuracy - is rapidly becoming a requirement for mainstream consumer and enterprise applications. Today, one can build a system that allows natural language text or speech input without knowing much more than a few API specs.

In this webinar we will cover the basics of speech recognition, semantic analysis for text analysis, and recent advances in natural language generation. Participants will learn how modern approaches have gone beyond counting words with statistical models to predicting speech the way people fill in sentences with context while listening. We will also present examples of commercially available NLP APIs to help participants experiment with NLP in their own applications.
