Watch the video to learn more.

In this video, Professor Khanh discusses the application of Natural Language Processing (NLP) in various fields.

NLP is a technology used to help computers understand human language. Examples of NLP applications include language translation, grammar checking in word processors, and personal assistant applications like Siri, Cortana, and Alexa.

Professor Le also mentions the use of NLP in bioinformatics, specifically in protein sequencing, where NLP models like FastText are employed to encode DNA sequences and extract information. The study demonstrates improved performance using NLP in predicting the origin of replication in DNA sequences. Comparative results show that NLP-based methods achieve an overall accuracy of over 89%, surpassing other methods by more than 2%. This highlights the potential of applying NLP in bioinformatics. State-of-the-art NLP models can be explored to generate favorable outcomes in sequence analysis.

How was NLP applied in protein sequencing and what were the outcomes? What are some potential applications of NLP in bioinformatics and sequence analysis?
