1. Course objectives
This course introduces various recent statistical methods in natural language processing. We will cover basic statistical tools for computational linguistics and their application to part-of-speech tagging, statistical parsing, word sense disambiguation, sentiment analysis, text categorization, machine translation, information retrieval and statistical language modeling. We also briefly touch on some topics of statistical language models for speech recognition and text-to-speech systems, and recent deep learning models for natural language processing.
