About the Technology
Recent advances in deep learning empower applications to understand text and speech with extreme accuracy. The result? Chatbots that can imitate real people, meaningful resume-to-job matches, superb predictive search, and automatically generated document summaries–all at a low cost. New techniques, along with accessible tools like Keras and TensorFlow, make professional-quality NLP easier than ever before.

About the Book
Natural Language Processing in Action is your guide to building machines that can read and interpret human language. In it, you’ll use readily available Python packages to capture the meaning in text and react accordingly. The book expands traditional NLP approaches to include neural networks, modern deep learning algorithms, and generative techniques as you tackle real-world problems like extracting dates and names, composing text, and answering free-form questions.

  • Rule-based and data-based NLP
  • Scalable pipelines

About the Reader
This book requires a basic understanding of deep learning and intermediate Python skills.

Editorial Reviews


“Learn both the theory and practical skills needed to go beyond merely understanding the inner workings of NLP, and start creating your own algorithms or models.”–From the Foreword by Dr. Arwen Griffioen, Zendesk

“Provides a great overview of current NLP tools in Python. I’ll definitely be keeping this book on hand for my own NLP work. Highly recommended!”–Tony Mullen, Northeastern University-Seattle

“An intuitive guide to get you started with NLP. The book is full of programming examples that help you learn in a very pragmatic way.”–Tommaso Teofili, Adobe Systems
