Learn the basics about natural language processing, a cross-discipline approach to making computers hear, process, understand, and duplicate human speech.

Make no mistake: NLP is a complicated field that one can spend years studying. This guide contains the basics about NLP, details how it can benefit businesses, and explains where to get started with its implementation.
