What is Natural language processing?

Natural language processing (NLP) is a branch of artificial intelligence that focuses on enabling computers to understand, interpret, and manipulate human language. NLP-based applications are used in various areas, such as machine translation, information retrieval, text mining, question answering, and natural language generation. NLP techniques are used to process large amounts of unstructured data, such as emails, web pages, and audio and video recordings. NLP algorithms analyze the structure and meaning of language to enable computers to interpret and understand human language. NLP techniques are used to enable computers to interpret and act on natural language input, such as understanding commands, responding to questions, and generating text.
