Natural Language Processing at CitizenLab: how machine learning can transform citizen engagement projects
Publication/Creation DateApril 29 2019
Description"Will robots take over the world? Probably not. However, NLP (or Natural Language Processing) already has. In recent years, a technology that was hesitant at best has made a huge leap forward and is now being integrated into many of the services that we use everyday.
Of course, we wouldn’t be mentioning this if there wasn’t a link with civic tech. By making it easy to easily manipulate and process large amounts of text, NLP offers great potential for cities and governments who want to use input from citizens in decision-making. In this article, we’ll show you what NLP means, what it could mean for citizen participation and what you can expect in the years to come."
