Computational Linguistics Applications

This group is established to allow CLA scientist and business pe...ople making ends meet by producing NLP applications (both parties are essential for the development of the domain) to communicate and share the ideas.

Traditionally, computational linguistics was limited to the scientists specialized in the processing of a natural language by computers. Scientific approaches and practical techniques come from linguistics, computer science, psychology, and mathematics. Nowadays, there are a number of practical applications available. These applications are sometimes developed by smart yet NLP-untrained developers who solve the problems using sophisticated heuristics. CLA aims to be a meeting place for both parties in order to share views and ideas. It will help scientist to better understand real world needs and practitioners not to reinvent the wheel.

Computational Linguistics needs to be applied to make the full use of the Internet. There is a definite need for software that can handle unstructured text and information to allow search for information on the web. The priority aim of the research in this area is to enable users to communicate with the computer in their native language.

There is a CLA Workshop connected to the subject:

Anyone keen to teach and learn is welcome.

CLA'10 Workshop is a place where the parties meet to exchange views and ideas with a benefit to all involved. The Workshop will focus on practical outcome of modeling human language use and the applications needed to improve human-machine interaction.
