BI Trend #3: Natural language processing (NLP)

Keeping up with the rapid pace of change in the BI ecosystem gets more challenging every year. With that in mind, we've put together a series of webinars focused on the Top 10 BI Trends in 2018.

In this webinar, we'll investigate the potential of BI software to intuitively understand human language as it is written and spoken.

The rising popularity of Amazon Alexa and Google Home has lead people to expect when they speak to software it will understand what to do. This concept is also ascendant in the world of data, making it easier for everyone to ask questions and conduct rapid analysis.

View this webinar and see:

  • an introduction to natural language processing (NLP)
  • examples of how NLP is already used in Tableau's geocoding and map search
  • a demonstration of some research prototypes that you might see in the not too distant future

Check out the rest of the 2018 Top 10 Business Intelligence Trends webinar series.
