Welcome to the home page of the Computational Linguistics and Information Processing Laboratory (CLIP) at the University of Maryland Institute for Advanced Computer Studies (UMIACS).
The Laboratory is co-directed by Bonnie J. Dorr, of the Computer Science Department, Amy S. Weinberg of the Linguistics Department, and Louiqa Raschid from the Smith School of Business. CLIP consists of two main entities: The Natural Language Group and the Database Group. The natural language group focuses on several areas of broadscale multilingual processing, e.g., machine translation, summarization, scalable translingual document detection, and cross-language information retrieval. The database group focuses on architectures for wide area computation with heterogeneous information servers, e.g., scientific discovery from biomolecular data sources. Several language researchers in the CLIP lab are also affiliated with the Language and Media Processing (LAMP) Laboratory.
