Natural Language Processing (NLP) is an evolving field within machine learning that is empowering financial market participants by extracting value from textual content at scale. The technology has been instrumental in the continued adoption of alternative data in the investment industry, and is contributing to the ever expanding data mosaic available to hedge funds and asset managers. We'll provide concrete examples of how media attention, sentiment, and actionable events are driving financial markets across multiple asset classes and investment horizons.
