Natural Language Processing (NLP)

Natural Language Processing (NLP) is a field of Artificial Intelligence (AI) that empowers computers to investigate and comprehend human dialect and language. It was figured to make software that produces and recognize normal language, so a client can have common discussions with his or her PC rather than through programming or artificial languages like Java or C. HOW NLP WORKS ? Processing the spoken or written word relies heavily on Big Data, large amounts of structured, semi-structured, and unstructured data that can be mined for information. Computers can quickly go through the data, analyze it, and find patterns or trends. Initially, NLP relied on basic rules where machines using algorithms were told what words and phrases to look for in text and then taught specific responses when th...

Chatbot

The chatbot is a computer program that has an ability to communicate with people by providing answers to questions and holding the conversation using Natural Language Processing. People input the natural language speech or text, while the program should provide the most suitable intelligent response in the form of text or speech. Demand of Chatbots? The use of bots can be attributed to a number of forces: • Widespread use of messaging apps among the younger generation WhatsApp hit the one-billion user mark. One-to-one messaging apps have surpassed the usage of social networks. This is seen to be the single biggest contributor to the rise of chatbots. Messaging apps are now platforms, and the phone is a messaging device. • Overwhelming app proliferation Despite the thousands of apps availab...

Association Rule Mining

Introduction The science of extracting useful information from large data sets or databases is named as data mining. Though data mining concepts have an extensive history, the term “Data Mining“, has been recently introduced in mid 90’s. Data mining covers areas of statistics, machine learning, data management and databases, pattern recognition, artificial intelligence, and other areas. Association rule mining is the most important technique in the field of data mining. Association rule mining is finding frequent patterns, associations, correlations, or causal structures among sets of items or objects in transaction databases, relational databases, and other information repositories. As the data generated by day-to-day activities, volume of data increases dramatically. Therefore, mining as...

Neural Networks

The neural networks are an emulation of the neural system of the brain, where each element of the biological system is replaced by a mathematical equivalent. An artificial neural network can do similar tasks of the human brain, tasks that a regular computer is unable to perform as image recognition, speech recognition and making decisions .Today the use of neural networks are being implemented in software, emulating the parallel nature of a neural network to a linear system. The most common applications are voice recognition, character recognition (OCR), image reconstruction and more, but are also being implemented in hardware, where lineal structure of processors is changed to a neural structure. This takes advantage of the parallel nature of the neural networks. This new technology is ca...

Machine Learning – Revisited

Our introduction to Machine Learning (click here) Blog Machine Learning is a concept of allowing machines to learn from examples and experience. So, what you do is feed data into a generic algorithm, and it builds the logic based on the given data. Arthur Samuel (1959) uttered: “It is a field of study that gives the computers the ability to learn without being explicitly programmed.” The process of learning begins with observations or data, such as examples, direct experience in order to look for patterns in data and make better decisions in the future based on the examples that we provide. The primary aim is to allow the computers learn automatically without human intervention or assistance and adjust actions accordingly. It is an application of Artificial Intelligence (AI) that provides ...
