Introduction to Natural Language Processing


Natural Language Processing (NLP) is a branch of artificial intelligence that bridges the gap between human communication and computer understanding. It enables machines to process, analyze, and generate human language in a meaningful way. In this course, we explore different NLP-related tasks such as text classification, machine translation, and speech recognition. We will use some packages that facilitate text processing and provide the theoretical background behind the algorithm utilized in NLP.

In this course, we will provide the theoretical requirements from a Linguistics and Artificial intelligence point of view. Each session will include a hands-on experience by coding and working on different datasets. At each practical session, we will provide feedback to the students by answering their questions and the challenges they face during the course.

Learning Outcomes

The students will learn about different tasks related to NLP and techniques utilized to handle different challenges. They will learn how to process data and apply their knowledge to optimize the output of different algorithms.
