Exploring Tools for Natural Language Processing and Text Analysis
During the meeting, the participants discussed a project related to categorizing non-profits for easier searchability. They mentioned using Nick's codes and expressed the need for assistance in implementing this strategy. They also briefly discussed natural language processing (NLP) and its relevance to their task of breaking up phrases into words. They highlighted the complexity of NLP and recommended exploring machine learning systems and text analysis tools to achieve their desired outcome. The participants emphasized the importance of understanding the specific goals and requirements of the project to find suitable solutions. They noted that the technical nature of these tools could work to their advantage as they may be underpriced due to the difficulty of selling them effectively. The meeting ended with the agreement to continue exploring the details and potentially revisiting the topic in future office hours.
