NLP Tutorials – Part 1: Beginner’s Guide to Text Pre-Processing

Natural Language Processing is a subdomain under Artificial Intelligence which deals with processing natural language data like text and speech. We can also term NLP as the "Art of extracting information from texts". Recently there has been a lot of activity in this field and amazing research coming out every day! But, the revolutionary research was the "Transformer" which opened up avenues to build massive Deep Learning models which can come very close to human-level tasks like Summarization and Question Answering. Then came the GPTs and BERTs which were massive models consisting of billions of computation parameters trained on very huge datasets and can be fine-tuned to a variety of NLP tasks and problem statements.
