One of the challenges faced by data scientists is dealing with unstructured data using traditional machine learning models. These models are trained on structured data that have input features with corresponding output labels. When using unstructured data, the data cannot be directly used as an input feature. One approach is to use Artificial Neural Networks (ANN) to unlock business insights from unstructured data.
The field of artificial intelligence has always envisioned machines being able to mimic the functioning and abilities of the human mind. Language is considered as one of the most significant achievements of humans that has accelerated the progress of humanity. So, it is not a surprise that there is plenty of work being done to integrate language into the field of artificial intelligence in the form of Natural Language Processing (NLP). Today we see the work being manifested in likes of Alexa and Siri.
