In my own work, I’ve been looking at how GPT-3-based tools can assist researchers in the research process. I am currently working with Ought, a San Francisco company developing an open-ended reasoning tool that is intended to help researchers answer questions in minutes or hours instead of weeks or months. Elicit is designed for a growing number of specific tasks relevant to research, like summarization, data labeling, rephrasing, brainstorming, and literature reviews.
In the U.S., central cancer registries collect, manage, and analyze longitudinal data about cancer cases and cancer deaths. Cancer data are collected from multiple sources such as hospitals, laboratories, physician offices, and independent diagnostic and treatment centers. The process of abstracting these crucial cancer data is very labor intensive and expensive. Unstructured data limits the ability of researchers to analyze the information without manual review. Sentiment analysis, often known as opinion mining, is a technique used in natural language processing to determine the emotional undertone of a document.

The parse tree gives the statistical knowledge about the grammatical interactions of the words according to the structure of the interpretation forms. NLP has become an essential tool to reduce the time and human effort to detect and prevent the spread of fake news and misinformation. This year, with so much false information on Covid-19 making the rounds, we’ve already seen some interesting approaches towards automatic fake news detection , so we’ll definitely see more of it during 2022.
ELIZA was able to simulate conversation and understanding using a pattern matching and substitution methodology. Developers hoped MT would translate Russian into English, but results were unsuccessful. Although the translations were not successful, these early stages of MT were necessary stepping stones on the way to more sophisticated technologies.

At the same time, a Chinese company published another Attention Network based model called ERNIE 2.0, they claim to outperform both BERT and XLNet in 16 different tasks. Along with these developments, also came the Transformer Models in the form of encoders and decoders. It is a model that uses attention to boost the speed of training and outperformed the Google Neural Machine Translation model in specific tasks. Similarly, BERT uses encoder representations of the transformer network and has marked a new era in NLP by breaking several records in handling language-based tasks.
Usingcognitive analytics, the automation of different technical processes are possible now such generation of a technical ticket related to a technical issue and also handling it in automated or semi-automated ways. The collaboration of these techniques can result in an automated process of handling technical issues inside an organization or providing the solution of some technical problems to the customer also in an automated manner. The research on the core and futuristic topics such as word sense disambiguation and statistically colored NLP, the work on the lexicon got a direction of research. This quest of the emergence of it was joined by other essential topics such as statistical language processing, Information Extraction and automatic summarising.
Evolution of Natural Language Processing
The objective is usually to train the algorithm to discover findings that humans otherwise would not notice or think to look for. Humans innately learn and understand language, and can use context or judgement to infer the intended meaning. Machines can’t do this without assistance, making NLP necessary to give them this understanding. NLP is often used in conjunction with other AI technologies to form a complete solution. It is present in everything from internet search engines to chat bots and speech recognition applications. There are many techniques of accepting human speech, classifying from mathematical and ML methods to order-based and algorithmic ways.
One example of this is in language models such as GPT3, which are able to analyze an unstructured text and then generate believable articles based on the text. Three tools used commonly for natural language processing include Natural Language Toolkit , Gensim and Intel natural language processing Architect. Intel NLP Architect is another Python library for deep learning topologies and techniques. More recently, ideas of cognitive NLP have been revived as an approach to achieve explainability, e.g., under the notion of “cognitive AI”. Likewise, ideas of cognitive NLP are inherent to neural models multimodal NLP .
