          Natural Language Processing, typically abbreviated as NLP, is a part of man-made consciousness that manages the cooperation among PCs and people utilizing the regular language. A definitive target of NLP is to peruse, decode, comprehend, and understand the human dialects in a way that is important.
Characteristic language handling is a subfield of phonetics, software engineering, data designing, and computerized reasoning worried about the cooperations among PCs and human dialects, specifically how to program PCs to process and examine a lot of normal language information.
Natural Language Processing is the technology used to aid computers to understand the human’s natural language.
It’s not an easy task teaching machines to understand how we communicate.
This article will give a simple introduction to Natural Language Processing and how it can be achieved.

What is NLP?

          Regular Language Processing, generally abbreviated as NLP, is a part of man-made consciousness i.e it is a part of artificial Intelligence that manages the cooperation among PCs and people utilizing the common language.
A definitive goal of NLP is to peruse, decode, comprehend, and understand the human dialects in a way that is important.
Most NLP methods depend on AI to get significance from human dialects.
In fact, a run of the mill communication among people and machines utilizing Natural Language Processing could go as follows:
1. A human converses with the machine
2. The machine catches the sound
3. Sound to message change happens
4. Preparing of the content's information
5. Information to sound transformation happens
6. The machine reacts to the human by playing the sound record

Natural Language Processing is the driving force behind the following common applications:
  • Language interpretation applications, for example, Google Translate
  • Word Processors, for example, Microsoft Word and Grammarly that utilize NLP to      check linguistic precision of writings.
  • Intuitive Voice Response (IVR) applications utilized in call focuses to react to     specific clients' solicitations.
  • Individual colleague applications, for example, OK Google, Siri, Cortana, and Alexa.

2. Why is NLP difficult?

          Natural Language processing is viewed as a troublesome issue in software engineering. It's the idea of the human language that makes NLP troublesome.
The standards that direct the death of data utilizing normal dialects are difficult for PCs to comprehend.
A portion of these principles can be high-leveled and unique; for instance, when somebody utilizes a mocking comment to pass data.
Then again, a portion of these principles can be low-leveled; for instance, utilizing the character "s" to connote the majority of things.
Exhaustively understanding the human language requires understanding both the words and how the ideas are associated with convey the proposed message.
While people can without much of a stretch ace a language, the vagueness and uncertain qualities of the characteristic dialects are what make NLP hard for machines to actualize.

3. How does NLP Work?

          NLP involves applying calculations to recognize and separate the normal language decides with the end goal that the unstructured language information is changed over into a structure that PCs can comprehend.
At the point when the content has been given, the PC will use calculations to separate importance related with each sentence and gather the basic information from them.
Now and then, the PC may neglect to comprehend the significance of a sentence well, prompting dark outcomes.
For example, a humorous incident occurred in the 1950s during the translation of some words between the English and the Russian languages.
Here is the biblical sentence that required translation:
“The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.”
Here is the result when the sentence was translated to Russian and back to English:
“The vodka is good, but the meat is rotten.”
