logo Restraints

  • Complexities associated with creating NLP solutions while using code-mixed language

In multilingual societies around the world, code-switching, also known as code-mixed (CM) language, is the alternation of languages within a conversation or utterance. Traditionally, informal or casual conversation has been linked to the CM language. There is proof that the CM language has taken over as the standard form of communication in a number of societies, including metropolitan Mexico and India. It has also influenced written text, particularly in social media and computer-mediated communication.

Working with non-canonical multilingual data that combines two or more languages presents challenges for NLP tasks such as normalization, language identification, language modeling, part-of-speech tagging, dependency parsing, machine translation, and automatic voice recognition (ASR). The properties of mixed data have an impact on tasks in a variety of ways, sometimes by redefining them (for instance, in language identification, by moving from document-level to word-level), and other times by generating novel lexical and syntactic structures (for example, mixed words that consist of morphemes from two different languages).

logo Opportunities

  • Increase in investments in the healthcare vertical

Hospitals and other healthcare facilities are increasingly going digital, which is creating a significant amount of data for the business. Healthcare firms are placing a lot of money on this vast amount of relevant data and analytics-driven methodology.

logo Challenges

  • Interoperability and reliability issues while deploying NLP algorithms

Through the use of computer-based software that can be trained, ML is used to develop A.I. Systems can process data using algorithms and find specific features from the dataset with the aid of machine learning (ML). NLP makes it possible for computers to comprehend human language, but it relies on algorithms built for certain jobs. Numerous system connectivity problems exist, including interoperability, accessibility, and non-contextual responses.

In July 2017, researchers at the Facebook A.I. Research (FAIR) lab discovered the chatbots had strayed from the plan and were speaking a language they had invented that was incomprehensible to humans. Additionally, a small number of tasks can only be carried out by humans and not by machines, and the opposite is also true. For instance, the rise of social media and smartphones has given rise to a new level of derivative languages that can be employed to either jargonize or condense sentences.
