At present, Natural Language is a leading technology that plays an important role and has a wide range of applications
in human daily life. For the Thai language, studies and applications of Natural Language have been developed since
1980, starting with the research related to syllable segmentation and word segmentation, which are the basic elements of the
language. After that, some studies in a higher level were conducted to apply the Natural Language in various fields.
Unfortunately, according to the complexity of the Thai language, the improvement of Thai Natural Language
Processing has been relatively slow over time. However, at present, the AI FOR THAI platform has been developed by
NECTEC to be a digital ecosystem, used as a center for disseminating the results of research studies on Natural
Language Processing and artificial intelligence. This platform offers many API services related to Natural Language
Processing (NLP) to help developers to create applications for business, which may help driving Thai NLP to be success
more effectively.
