CS 6740/INFO 6300 Advanced Language Technologies
piazza link for the course
Graduate-level research-focused introduction to technologies for the computational treatment of information in human-language form, covering natural-language processing (NLP) and/or information retrieval (IR).
The goal of the course is to teach you how to evaluate and conduct leading-edge research in natural language processing (NLP). As a result, I'll tailor the course content to your specific interests.
The majority of classes will consist of presentations and active discussion of research papers in NLP from (usually) recent top conferences (e.g. ACL, NAACL, EMNLP). The remainder of the classes are devoted to project-related presentations, exercises and discussions. (Yes, you will complete a semester-long research project, usually in a small group.)
