Natural Language Processing (NLP) is a branch of Artificial Intelligence (AI) that enables computers to process and understand human natural languages. Natural language processing focuses on the interaction between the computer and the human and involves the development of algorithms that will enable computers to tag, classify and interpret human language in a way that is valuable and meaningful.
How does a Human brain process information?
The human brain processes information through a complex network of specialised cells called Neurons. Neurons communicate with each other through electrical impulses and signals. When a human being receives a sensory input, such as seeing, hearing, or feeling something, their brain triggers a series of events and sends it to the sensory receptors. This latter distributes it between the different Neuron channels which will collaborate with each other to realise it. Let’s clarify this in more details. A human being decides to complete a task, e.g to buy a pair of trainers. The brain takes this piece of information and segments it into a series of tasks and assigns each task to a channel of Neurons. Each Neuron collects the data it needs to complete its assignment and transmits the task to another Neuron. In the end, the brain collects and integrates completed tasks and transmits the information and coordinates a response.
