NLP, or natural language processing, is often involved in industry use of chat-bots. We’ve all had experiences with chat-bots that auto-regulates our daily processes, but the potential for these chat-bots to exceed their current functions are still in rapid development.

Understanding Natural language Processing

NLP enables conversational experiences with users in the form of chat-bots and virtual assistants. This experience can be through the mediums of messaging platforms, SMS, pop-up chats, or anything that utilizes smart responses.

The conversational platform’s API is often outfitted with the proper tools to bring about a desired speech. The ultimate goal of most conversational platform is to achieve advanced and natural speech patterns that are indistinguishable from a human’s.

  • Virtual customer assistants: These automated voice assistants are commonly used to evaluate user intent to prompt successful human-to-human interactions after enough valid information was acquired.
