Natural Language Processing (NLP) is an area of Artificial Intelligence concerned with the problem of automatically analyzing and generating a natural language, such as English, French, or other, in written or spoken form. It is a relatively old area of computer science, but it is still a very active research area. This course introduces fundamental concepts and principals used in NLP with emphasis on statistical approaches to NLP and unification-based grammars. In the application part of the course, we discuss the problems of question answering, machine translation, text classification, information extraction, grammar induction, and dictionary generation and other.
