The Natural Language Processing Lab (NLP-Lab) has a simple motto:
You cannot train yourself a car. You cannot machine-learn a tire for it. You have to engineer it.
We do train models, but we actually build and engineer systems. If we know something about language in general or a language in particular, we enjoy using this knowledge in engineering of NLP and AI technologies. Our NLP and AI focus is on computational semantics, reasoning, common sense, and knowledge representations and processing.
During the 2020 semester the focus is on:
We are organizing special meetings to refresh our knowledge of Lisp and Prolog for logic computation and reasoning, in particular related to computational semantics and pragmatics, and probabilistic logic. See here…
Here is our Event Calendar with all meeting times.
