The power of word embeddings

Natural language processing is a messy and complicated affair but modern advanced techniques are offering increasingly impressive results. Word embeddings are a modern machine learning technique that has taken the natural language processing world by storm.

Machine Learning Use-Cases in Human Language Processing

Over the past few years, we’ve seen amazing improvements in machine learning applied to natural languages. New applications have emerged, and some of them are likely to change how humans communicate with each other and with their computers.
