What Is Machine Learning?

According to Stanford University’s definition, Machine Learning is the science of getting computers to act without being explicitly programmed. Through evolution, machine learning has made self-driving car possible, enabled smart phones to do speech recognition, and effectively optimized our web search experience. Machine learning has grown to be so sophisticated today, that it could even understand […]

4 Applications Of Natural Language Processing

Natural Language Processing (NLP) is a field of computer science, artificial intelligence, and computational linguistics concerned with the interactions between computers and human (natural) languages. As such, NLP is related to the area of human–computer interaction. (Wikipedia) History of NLP NLP grew out of the activity of the ‘behavioural modelling‘ activity of Frank […]

Control the Output of the Lemmatizer V4

You can now change the output of our Lemmatizer API by passing it one of the nine flag options. Our lemmatizing API allows you to find the root of a word (more specifically the “lemma” of a word), taking inflections like “dogs” and returning “dog” or “abilities” and returning “ability”. To lemmatize […]
