Natural language processing (NLP) fuses mathematics and computer science with artificial intelligence. It takes in spoken, written, and image-based language and applies statistical rules to process the language and turn it into commands or to enable computers to communicate with people.
Unfortunately, these machine learning models face difficulties in this use case theme: mainly, they cannot read tone. However, they use contextual clues in the surrounding text to compensate.
In the earliest days of natural language processing, developers applied manually-generated rules-based algorithms to language. However, the field advanced to the use of statistical models—then to neural models. In contrast with older rules-based models, these programs can take in huge amounts of data and generate outputs (conversations, translations) based on the most likely results without having to tag individual parts of speech.
