Natural Language Understanding
Time in Year:
Course runs in Semester 2.
Number of Posts:
1 Teaching Assistant
NLU is a new course being taught for the first time in Autumn 2009.
The course will build on the Jurafsky and Martin text book (2nd
edition), but will also use a collection of research papers.
The TA will be responsible for:
- helping to develop questions for the assignments (including support code and sample solutions)
- marking of the assignments
The TA will need to be familiar with natural language processing
methods, and ideally will have experience of applying these methods to
the topics covered in the course: parsing, semantic and discourse
processing, grammar induction. Programming skills (e.g., Python, Perl,
Java) are also required.
