NYU and The Writer Launch Unique AI Business Language Collaboration 

May 09, 2017

Language consultancy, The Writer, has announced a unique collaboration with New York University to support research into Natural Language Processing (NLP) – the branch of computer science that deals with analyzing and generating human language. As part of this collaboration, The Writer and the NYU Tisch School of the Arts’ Interactive Telecommunications Program (ITP), will explore how NLP and machine learning can be applied to business language. The aim is to develop smarter, more scalable writing processes and a richer analysis of written communications, for example by teaching a machine to recognize meaning, tone, and sentiment.

The Writer, which has helped brands define their tone of voice for over 16 years, will also receive the latest data and insights into NLP from NYU. ITP is a two-year graduate program located in the Tisch School of the Arts whose mission is to explore the imaginative use of communications technologies, including how these might augment, improve, and bring delight and art into people's lives.
