Natural Language Processing and Text Mining 7,5 Credits
Course ContentsThis is an introductory course in Natural Language Processing (NLP) and Text Mining. The course covers basic and state-of-the-art techniques for the analysis and interpretation of natural language, focusing on methods involving machine learning on text, alternating theory with practice. The course includes assignments, in which the student implements algorithms for various NLP tasks and applications. After completing the course, the student shall have acquired a thorough theoretical understanding of, and practical experience with, modern algorithms for common NLP tasks and applications. Specifically, the student should understand and be able to apply all theoretical concepts covered.
The course includes the following elements:
- Regular Expressions and Text Normalization
- Data Annotation, Data Bias, Ethics and Fairness in NLP
- Word Embeddings and Word Senses
- Syntactic and Semantic Analysis
- Encoder-Decoder Models (Seq2Seq), Attention and Transformers
- State-of-the-art neural NLP models
- Analysis, Interpretation and Evaluation of NLP Models
- NLP Tasks, such as; Language Modelling , Text Classification and Clustering, Information Extraction, Named Entity Recognition, Semantic Role Labelling, Part-Of-Speech Tagging Coreference Resolution and Discourse Coherence
- NLP Applications, such as; Machine Translation, Information Retrieval, Text Generation, Summarization, Question Answering, Dialogue Systems, Chatbots, Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR) and Text-to-Speech Synthesis (TTS)
