Computational Semantics

(Semantikk for naturlig språk, 2018)

Given by Björn Gambäck.

The course consists of a set of regular lectures and student presentations, as well as a short exam (written or oral).

Note that the course is not only about Computational Semantics, but that the course content in general is tailored towards the needs of the students writing a Master Thesis in Language Technology or a related area. Other students are of course very welcome to follow the course, but are adviced to contact the lecturer beforehand.

This year we will in particular discuss:

  • introduction to language technology,
  • classification algorithms for language processing, applied to:
    • sentiment analysis
    • author profiling
    • hate speech identification
  • semantic representations and processing,
  • language evolution and simulation, and
  • computational (linguistic) creativity.
  • Course schedule
