Natural Language Generation: An AI Frontier
As consumers become accustomed to simple conversational interfaces – from Alexa to Siri – application developers are turning to modern AI Natural Language Processing technologies to deliver even more robust conversational and content generation systems.
Natural Language Understanding (NLU) systems have received more attention than Natural Language Generation (NLG), which have tended to be template-driven. That is beginning to change as leading vendors develop more advanced NLG technologies capable of generating—rather than selecting—context-appropriate natural language reports and responses from rich data models and streams.
In this research note, Analyst Adrian Bowles defines Natural Language Generation, its relationship to Artificial Intelligence, and its applications in the emerging market.
