Natural Language Processing

 

Natural Language Processing Lab

Natural language processing lets computers analyze and “understand” human language texts, utilizing methods that combine advanced computer science algorithms with linguistic knowledge. The research group in natural language processing at Bar Ilan University is lead by Prof. Ido Dagan, and starting February 2013 also by Dr. Yoav Goldberg.

Our research interests include the applied semantic domain with particular focus on performing semantic inferences on top of textual data, as well as infrastructure algorithms in language processing with focus on syntactic parsing. The Textual Entailment paradigm was introduced by our lab.
