Letters From Readers

These are letters that I treasure, for the impact I have been able to make with my blog articles.

I just read your article ‘All you need to know about text preprocessing for NLP and Machine Learning’ on KDnuggets and I have to say it is one the best, most comprehensive and well-explained articles I’ve ever encountered related to pre-processing.
