DSC Webinar Series: The Promise of Natural Language Processing (NLP)

  • Sean Welch 

The rising popularity of Amazon Alexa and Google Home has lead people to expect when they speak to software it will understand what to do. This concept is also ascendant in the world of data, making it easier for everyone to ask questions and conduct rapid analysis. In this webinar, we’ll investigate the potential of BI software to intuitively understand human language as it is written and spoken.

In this latest Data Science Central Webinar we will provide:

• An introduction to natural language processing (NLP)
• Examples of how NLP is already used in Tableau’s geocoding and map search
• A demonstration of some research prototypes that you might see in the not too distant future

Speaker: Vidya Setlur, Senior Research Scientist — Tableau

Hosted by: Bill Vorhies, Editorial Director — Data Science Central
