NLP – Natural Language Processing, Can’t rule out a very common saying i.e. “Garbage in, garbage out.” Every machine learning model needs quality data, correct, suitable & powering algorithm and good computing power, but what gets in actually into these algorithms for training sadly remains far from reality. Every data scientist should follow their own customised & need-based essential Guide to training the data. Some challenging natural language processing (NLP) problems with singular and simpler models do require Deep learning methods to stand out the statistical methods.


Natural Language Processing – NLP

Natural language processing, one of the most important technologies of today’s information age. It’s everywhere and used on almost at every instance in daily life like emails, machine translation, google search, virtual agents etc. In recent times deep learning has obtaining too much attraction and respect from the industry which helps nlp to avoid traditional, task-specific feature engineering. The performance across many different NLP tasks, using single end-to-end neural model has achieved significant improvement.

NLP a kind of technique which deals with building and refining computational algorithms for automatically analyse and represent human language in form of text and voice. In order to enhance natural language processing skill-set for advancing the machine learning techniques spectrum one needs to know deep learning well. By my thinking, it is intuitive that one should get a detailed understanding of the past, present, and future of deep learning in NLP which is a golden key for extracting insights from data.

Remember recurrent neural networks models comes very handy to translate language. Through interactive exercises and using scikit-learn, TensorFlow, Keras, and NLTK libraries with one’s own skill to put all of them together and apply on real-world data. NLP powered systems & applications like Google’s powerful search engine, recently, Amazon’s voice assistant “Alexa”, Apple’s Siri are getting smarter day by day.

Deep Learning and Machine Learning Role

With the rampant spread of misinformation around AI and its bundle group i.e. machine learning, neural nets, deep learning etc. it has become easier and easier to create hype and generate fake info without reality. The hype around the technology (AI bundle) is very real but that the hype is based on small real results and more on talks.

Deep learning methods are delivering on their promise thus are very popular. Deep learning (recurrent neural models) is a powerful tool to handle linguistic recursion. The human language are normally composed of phrases with certain (most of the time fixed) structures. Recurrent neural networks are super efficient to handle sequence information.

Deep learning models with enterprise architecture can be very complementary to the success of NLP programs and projects by increasing the odds for reaching targeted outcomes. As we look at AI and the future, we get impressive and firsthand information about deep learning role in developing NLP solutions to the next level. The key considerations involve the creation of new robust and scalable models for positioning NLP at a competitive edge.

On specific angle deep learning powering NLP to provide a platform where innovators, technology vendors, end-users and enthusiasts showcasing the latest innovations and technologies that transform businesses and the broader society

European and South African’s event leading with great focus on the impact of AI on business and the broader society. Visionary speakers are exciting the local and global authorities by providing new insights into key trends, opportunities and challenges.


Deep Neural Networks in NLP

Deep neural networks -In a simple language its a combo of an encoder for feature extraction and a decoder to transform those features to a desired output. Features helps learn & recognise low-level attributes. Interestingly the same concept can easily be applied to natural language processing as well thorough understanding modern neural network algorithms for the processing of linguistic information. NLP is undergoing rapid evolution as new methods and tools are converging/rising exponentially due to explosion in availability of data.


Points to Note:

All credits if any remains on the original contributor only. We have covered all basics around NLP. RNNs are all about modelling units in sequence. The perfect support for Natural Language Processing – NLP tasks. Though often such tasks struggle to find best companion between CNN’s and RNNs algorithms to look for information.

Machine Learning (ML) - Everything You Need To KnowConclusion –  Deep learning under unsupervised learning domain works much better and given the current scale of data, this makes even more sense. Deep Learning, in short, is going much beyond machine learning and its algorithms that are either supervised or unsupervised. In DL it uses many layers of nonlinear processing units for feature extraction and transformation.

In DL learning is based on multiple levels of features or representation in each layer with the layers forming a hierarchy of low-level to high-level features Where traditional machine learning focuses on feature engineering, deep learning focuses on end-to-end learning based on raw features. Traditional deep learning creates/ train-test splits of the data where ever possible via cross-validation. Load ALL the training data into main memory and compute a model from the training data.
