Language Processing 2

Course content

Have you ever wondered how to build a system that can process text automatically, for example translate between languages, reveal syntactic structure, or extract semantic information?  

In this class we will explore fundamental algorithms and models for natural language processing, and describe the application of these algorithms and models to key problems in natural language processing, such as POS tagging, syntactic, semantic and discourse analysis, and machine translation. 

The main focus will be on the practical implementation of methods for syntactic parsing. The format of the class consists of lectures (including guest lectures), student presentations, and project work.
