What if you could directly ask questions of your data and the software could respond with a selection, filter, or new visualization? In this DSC webinar, the Tableau Research team explains natural language queries and how they are (already) helping you visualize your data. This presentation includes an introduction to natural language processing (NLP), examples of how NLP is already used in Tableau’s geocoding and map search, and a demonstration of some research prototypes that you might see in the not too distant future. Come participate in the discussion and tell us what things you would say to or ask your visualization!
