• Computational linguistics is the scientific study of language from a computational perspective, and thus an interdisciplinary field, involving linguistics, computer science, mathematics, logic, cognitive science, and cognitive psychology.
  • This course studies theoretical aspects of computational linguistics, in particular in its subfield known as computational semantics, which is concerned with deriving suitable meaning representations from natural language expressions and reasoning with such meaning representations.
  • The course will use the primary reference for the essential materials in computational semantics, but also review more recent and state-of-the-art improvements as reported in the literature.
