This advanced seminar will focus on computational modeling of language, including cognitive/linguistic
 
aspects as well as practical language technology. Bayesian and information theoretic approaches will
 
figure prominently. The seminar will combine reviewing fundamental material, taking a reading-group
 
approach to key advanced papers, and (hopefully) bringing in guest speakers. Cross-disciplinary
 
participation is strongly encouraged.  ([http://umiacs.umd.edu/~resnik/ling848_fa2010/ Course Web page])

This is the second semester in our graduate sequence in computational linguistics. Students are assumed to have taken the first semester (Ling723/CMSC723) or equivalent, and this class will provide foundations for advanced seminars in computational linguistics. Students are expected to be able to know how to program, and will exercise this ability periodically in homework assignments and/or projects.  The topics we'll cover are intended to get students up to speed on necessary background in order to understand and perform cutting-edge research in natural language processing, which requires a strong grounding in statistical NLP models and methods. Some of the topics are in the same areas as in Computational Linguistics I, but we will go deeper. As always, the syllabus is subject to revision; however, it will follow Manning and Schuetze's textbook relatively closely at least in early parts of the course.  ([http://www.umiacs.umd.edu/~resnik/ling773_sp2010/ Recent course Web page])
