|Time & Place:||
The first class is online via Zoom, Fri March 5, 9:00 - 10:30
After that, we will meet for 30 min every Friday at 10:00
The course surveys solutions to common NLP tasks ranging from entity recognition to text generation. It evaluates various approaches (machine learning, rules, larger resources, ...) and their combinations.
Most of the course consists of students presenting and discussing papers relevant to a given topic. Part of the course is also implementation of a prototype system, typically replicating one described in one of the papers.
Typically this course is organized as a discussion of important papers. Everybody reads all the papers to be able to participate in the discussion. For each paper, one student will be responsible for leading the discussion.
Discussion is really hard over Zoom. So instead, the course will be offline during the lockdown. It will resume normally once/if possible.
This does not change:
There is one programming [Project] due on July 31 (talk to me if you cannot meet the deadline)
