LING 4434

Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2020-2021.

An in-depth exploration of modern computational linguistic techniques. A continuation of  LING 4424 - Computational Linguistics. Whereas LING 4424 covers foundational techniques in symbolic computational modeling, this course will cover a wider range of applications as well as coverage of neural network methods. We will survey a range of neural network techniques that are widely used in computational linguistics and natural language processing as well as a number of techniques that can be used to probe the linguistic information and language processing strategies encoded in computational models. We will examine ways of mapping this linguistic information both to linguistic theory as well as to measures of human processing (e.g., neuroimaging data and human behavioral responses).

When Offered Fall.

Prerequisites/Corequisites Prerequisite: LING 4424 and one other 3000 level or above linguistics course.
