Natural Language Processing for Chatbots
This chapter is to get you started with Natural Language Processing (NLP) using Python needed to build chatbots. You will learn the basic methods and techniques of NLP using an awesome open-source library called spaCy. If you are a beginner or intermediate to the Python ecosystem, then do not worry, as you’ll get to do every step that is needed to learn NLP for chatbots. This chapter not only teaches you about the methods in NLP but also takes real-life examples and demonstrates them with coding examples. We'll also discuss why a particular NLP method may be needed for chatbots. Note that NLP in itself is a skill.
