Data Science and Artificial Intelligence Certificate Instructor Saeid Abolfazli discusses the momentum behind natural language processing and data science. 

What is natural language processing?

Natural language processing is one of the most dominant AI technologies that is used to process unstructured and free text, so it helps to unveil unprecedented amount of knowledge and insight from unstructured data which is natural text.

Data science, AI, NLP, machine learning technologies are increasingly being adopted across business sectors 

AI, machine learning, and natural language processing courses are growing in demand and that is a natural response to the businesses adopting these technologies in different areas. 

Not only is the adoption increasing in each business but also across different sectors. Different sectors are employing these solutions and in the next few years, I assume, this momentum will continue to grow and we are going to have more programs coming to SCS. 

Data Science and AI technology skills increasingly in demand 

Over the last five years we have seen a significant growth in adoption of AI solutions in enterprise. In the last year itself such growth has tripled compared to previous years. We are going to witness the same trend for the next few years and that would further squeeze our talent pool and demand for more AI, data science and NLP expertise.
