What is Natural Language Processing?
Natural Language Processing (NLP) is a subfield of linguistics, computer science, information engineering, and artificial intelligence. NLP is focused on the interactions between computers and natural human languages, particularly how to program computers to process and analyze large amounts of natural language data.
How does Cloud Academy use NLP?
Cloud Academy’s mission is to help people improve and track their skills. With this objective in mind, training people with online-based learning content is just a part of the whole picture aimed at delivering quality content and providing useful insights both to learners and to their managers.
The Cloud Academy training platform is comprised of many key features, including:
Courses to build tech skills on industry-leading technologies with video-based lectures
Hands-on labs to learn in live cloud environments using step-by-step procedures
Lab challenges to demonstrate problem-solving skills using our sandboxed accounts on AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud Platform
Exams and quizzes (skill assessments) where knowledge progress is tracked to provide useful insights both to learners and to their managers
Such products are based on cutting-edge technologies that are continuously experimented to drive new features, some of which are later prototyped before being eventually integrated into the entire platform, activity led by a dedicated team named Inspire.
Among the others, one of the goals of the technology developed by Inspire is to automate and scale the management of content with the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI). Indeed, managing content is known to be a demanding and time-consuming activity, typically manual and fully in charge of a team of Subject Matter Experts (SMEs). The technology is meant for simplifying and automating the management of content in order to let the SMEs focus on the most interesting activities where their expertise cannot be replaced by a machine learning algorithm.
