In this theme you will be supplied with a firm background in the core of current computational linguistics and a solid comprehension of its neighboring fields.
The computational linguistics theme offers students who aspire to become Natural Language Processing (NLP) experts a solid background in various important sub-disciplines of this field. The theme offers 4 core courses and 6 electives. The core courses span the center field of computational linguistics, addressing corpus linguistics (5 EC), speech analysis and synthesis (5EC), machine learning-based NLP (10 EC), and a literature analysis course on deep learning-based approaches to NLP (10 EC). The 5 EC electives address text mining, machine translation, evolutionary algorithms, computational semantics, social network analysis and statistics in linguistics.
