Introduction to Natural Language Processing (CS 2731, INFSCI 2420)
This course provides an introduction to the field of natural language processing (NLP) - the creation of computer programs that can understand, generate, and learn natural language. Natural language understanding will be used as a vehicle to introduce the three major subfields of NLP: syntax, semantics, and pragmatics. The course will introduce both knowledge-based and statistical methods for NLP, and will illustrate the use of such methods in a variety of application areas.
