By Linly Ku Published on Oct. 06, 2021

Natural Language Processing (NLP) is a computer’s ability to understand language in its spoken or written form. It is the component of artificial intelligence that can “listen” or “read” when a computer interacts with a human.

NLP is a core component in any human-to-computer interactions and is being used from the first resume screen to the exit interview. These 14 startups are creating NLP tools to improve departments across human resources to legal and accounting.
