AI and linguistics have an intertwined relationship. Not only are they both integral to the development of natural language processing (NLP) technology, but AI also relies heavily on linguistic principles for its effective operation. AI employs language models trained using corpus-based statistical methods to replicate human speech patterns and produce outputs imitating natural language behavior. At the same time, linguists are studying how humans and machines use language to better understand the nuances of language. AI helps facilitate this exploration by allowing for quick analysis of large volumes of data. As a result, both fields can benefit from each other’s insights to create more effective communication systems and technologies.
