Learn both the theory and practical skills needed to go beyond merely understanding the inner workings of NLP, and start creating your own algorithms or models.

From the Foreword by Dr. Arwen Griffioen, Zendesk
Look inside

Natural Language Processing in Action is your guide to creating machines that understand human language using the power of Python with its ecosystem of packages dedicated to NLP and AI.

This book is one of three products included in the Applied Deep Learning bundle. Get the entire bundle for only $59.99.

about the technology

Recent advances in deep learning empower applications to understand text and speech with extreme accuracy. The result? Chatbots that can imitate real people, meaningful resume-to-job matches, superb predictive search, and automatically generated document summaries—all at a low cost. New techniques, along with accessible tools like Keras and TensorFlow, make professional-quality NLP easier than ever before.

about the book

Natural Language Processing in Action is your guide to building machines that can read and interpret human language. In it, you’ll use readily available Python packages to capture the meaning in text and react accordingly. The book expands traditional NLP approaches to include neural networks, modern deep learning algorithms, and generative techniques as you tackle real-world problems like extracting dates and names, composing text, and answering free-form questions.

Provides a great overview of current NLP tools in Python. I’ll definitely be keeping this book on hand for my own NLP work. Highly recommended!

Tony Mullen, Northeastern University–Seattle

An intuitive guide to get you started with NLP. The book is full of programming examples that help you learn in a very pragmatic way.
