Natural language processing: Field of study in which
machines are trained to understand human language using
machine-learning techniques. It’s useful for automatic
translations, chatbots, or AI personal assistants. Think of
the robot voice that picks up your helpline call and asks,
“What can I help you with?” or an automated chatbot that
responds to your texts.
Parsing: The process of evaluating text according to a set
of grammar or syntax rules. You can build algorithms that
parse text according to English grammar rules, for example,
to aid natural language processing.
