CS G224: Natural Language Processing

This course provides an introduction to the computational modeling of human language, the ongoing effort to create computer programs that can communicate with people in natural language, and current applications of the natural language field such as automated document classification, intelligent query processing, and information extraction. Topics include: computational models of grammar and automatic parsing; statistical language models and the analysis of large text corpuses; natural language semantics and programs that understand language; models of discourse structure; and language use by intelligent agents. Required coursework includes formal and mathematical analysis of language models, and implementation of working programs that analyze and interpret natural language text.
