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

Executive Summary The Capstone Project of the Data Science Specialization in Coursera offered by Johns Hopkins University 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.
