The power of machine learning to benefit mobile apps is remarkable. Although machine learning technology was initially conceived by tech pioneer Arthur Samuel while working at IBM in 1959, it has only recently entered the mainstream. An increasing number of app developers are opting to use machine learning in conjunction with other cutting-edge technologies such as artificial intelligence and predictive analytics.
As we see advances in natural language processing (NLP) and related technology fields—including machine learning and artificial intelligence—an increasing number of mobile apps are leveraging such technology. These innovations are impressive considering NLP has only been in the mainstream for a few years.
