Natural Language Understanding


Master in Artificial Intelligence Systems




Description
Natural Language Understanding (NLU) is the fundamental component of artificial intelligence systems ( AIS ) that communicate with humans. AIS communicate directly with humans via the conversational interfaces of (ro)bots. AIS may be able to read and comprehend vast amounts of human language data ( speech, text or multimedia ) and makes sense. In the first part of the course we will provide the students the basic knowledge about the natural language structure from the lexicon to the document level, formal models for representing the lexicon, the sentence and the discourse. We will present and provide the machine learning models to learn language structures from language corpora. In the last part of the course we will describe use cases of Natural Language Understanding in AIS. Students will be trained to train simple natural language understanding models for different use cases.
