Next Word Prediction using Katz Backoff Model - Part 1: The Data Analysis

Executive Summary The Capstone Project of the Johns Hopkins Data Science Specialization is to build an NLP application, which should predict the next word of a user text input. This report will discuss the nature of the project and data, the model and algorithm powering the application, and the implementation of the application. Part 1 will focus on the analysis of the datasets provided, which will guide the direction on the implementation of the actual text prediction program.
