The digitalization of marketing and other business functions has generated a wealth of textual data with valuable business insights. The data include user-generated-content (UGC) reviewing product performance, dialogs documenting customer service interaction, financial reports explaining performance and strategy, and so forth. Companies and researchers are scrambling for natural language processing (NLP) to distill insights from the textual data. However, data analysts, especially those who mostly use econometrics and multivariate statistics, may not have NLP in their toolset because many breakthroughs in the NLP technique are very recent.
In the webinar, we will survey the general applications of NLP in marketing research and discuss their technical foundations. Besides, we also have assembled learning materials for interested attendees who want to further their NLP knowledge. In sum, the webinar aims to lower the learning curve of NLP for attendees who are new to this area.
