What is Natural Language Query?
Natural Language Query (NLQ), a subset of Natural Language Processing (NLP) enables you to query the data request in simple languages into the user interface. It uses natural language expressions to discover and understand data. It accelerates the process of finding answers that data can provide. It also helps bridge the gap between technical and non-technical users who may not understand which database has the data and how to use SQL query to create calculations to answer their questions.
It supports the data operations such as driving table suggestion, filtering, grouping and aggregations, sorting, and data visualization using the single score, list, bar chart, pie chart, time series, etc. It does not support domain separation and on-premises instances.
