Under the successful completion of this course students understand the basics of natural language processing. They learn about selected fundamental tasks and problems common in text analysis and natural language processing, and know basic techniques to solve them. In addition, they are capable of interpreting text data and explaining how to extract useful information from natural language content.

The course offers an introduction to natural language processing providing technological and theoretical backgrounds of processing and understanding textual content using computational approaches. It gives an overview of various rudimentary techniques used to cover diverse aspects of textual content and explains how to apply them in an effective way. Some examples of recent research problems and the applications of methods to solve them will also be provided.

Presentation of lecture slides by lecturer; demonstrations of selected tools; oral or written presentations of literature, exercises or other assignments by participants as well as discussions on the contents of the lectures

Participants are graded through marks of written exam, and presentations of their assignments. Details will be announced in the first session.
