A Lite Introduction to Markov Chain

Medium - 05-17


Previously I wrote a lite introduction to Latent Dirichlet Allocation as part of a deep dive into what makes Natural Language Processing so great. Natural Language Processing will be picking up steam over the next couple of years (until 2025 to be exact) as Artificial Intelligence continues to grow. NLP is one of the key drivers, and as it continues to be a part of our daily lives, maybe its important to understand how it works behind the scenes. There are a ton of different concepts, mathematics, and models that go into different Natural Language Processing use cases, but we are only going to understand one on a basic level and that is Markov Chains.
