  2. Phone calls
  3. Call center analytics
  4. Social Media Text
  5. Video Stream
  6. Translation platforms


Natural Language Processing is an interesting world that needs different areas of knowledge from linguistics, Mathematics, computer science, and so on. Starting to get involved in this branch of AI needs passionate curiosity from the student so be curious and never give up.
