There are two modules in the course: psycholinguistics and computational linguistics
Module Computational Linguistics
We are increasingly confronted with applications of computational linguistics: Google Translate, SIRI and automatic analysis of opinions in social media are only a few examples. The computational linguistics part of the course introduces this research area as a part of Artificial Intelligence. Some of the topics that will be discussed are:
- Computer models explaining how people (and robots) cal acquire, produce, and understand language.
- The societal and economic importance of computational linguistics
- Basic methods and modules in computational linguistics: knowledge-based vs. statistical
- Applications of computational linguistics: spelling correction, machine translation, stylometry, text mining, etc.
