CSCI159 HM - Natural Language Processing

Credit(s): 3

Instructor(s): Medero, Schofield

Description: An introduction to the fundamental concepts and ideas in natural language processing, sometimes called computational linguistics. The goals of the field range from text translation and understanding to enabling humans to converse with robots. We will study language processing starting from the word level to syntactic structure to the semantic meaning of text. Approaches include structured and statistical methods, as well as exploration of current natural language research. Students will build and modify systems and will use large existing corpora for validating their systems.

Prerequisite(s): CSCI081 HM  and (MATH062 HM  or BIOL154 HM )
