Course description

This course tries to go deeper into how we can represent human language (say English or Slovak) in a way that can be processed by computational systems (a.k.a. computer programs), and how this representation can then be used to do interesting things, such as

  • question answering
  • translation
  • grammatical error correction
  • summarization
  • text (like poems or song lyrics) generation
  • and much more...

All of this combined is part of a field called Natural Language Processing, which ended up being the name of the course.


Intro (Demos)

A few cool things we'll (probably) learn more about in this class:
