The Natural Language Processing Lab
The Natural Language Processing Lab (NLP-Lab) is focused on theoretical work and implementations of Natural Language Processing (NLP) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) solutions using hybrid approaches, empiricist, neural, probabilistic, and knowledge-driven, with a particular interest in neuro-symbolic modeling. We are also strongly interested in Quantum NLP and NLP combined with Machine Learning (ML) solutions for computer vision and multi-modal information processing.
The NLP-Lab is located at Indiana University at Bloomington. While it is mainly a local group of students and researchers with a strong interest in NLP and AI here in Indiana, it has ties to colleagues all across the country.
During summer 2023 we meet every week in Luddy Hall 0002 every Wednesday 4-6 PM. (See Teams and email announcements for more details.)
During the 2023/2024 academic year the focus is on:
In all these projects we work on hands-on implementation of technologies, utilizing programming languages like Python and Rust, and graph or RDF libraries, as well as common graph-database systems like Apache Jena, oxigraph, AllegroGraph, GraphDB, or Neo4j.
See for example:
If you are interested in joining our Rust tutorials with a focus on using Rust for NLP and AI or in Robotics environments (with the [Robot Operating System] (ROS)), please get in touch!
