Lo and behold -- we've finally published the final version of the TAR 2018 proceedings! We are extremely happy with how it turned out and hope you think the same. There is no doubt that it will help you stand out from the crowd if you ever decide to pursue a career in natural language processing or machine learning. :)
Now the bar is set quite high for the next edition of the course!
We've finished assigning the project topics to teams. The resulting assignment is fairly good: only four teams were not assigned their most preferred topic (but did get their second choice). Please find what topic you've gotten in the extended post.
Having the project topic assigned to your team, you can start working on your projects! The next step is the checkpoint on May 7-9, where we will check on your progress. If you are unsure about how to start and think you need additional guidelines, feel free to visit us during the office hours, that's what we're here for.
The topic of the next lecture is Basics of Natural Language Processing. To prepare for the class, please find time to read the following:
- FSNLP Chapter 1: Introduction
- Sections 1.1, 1.3, 1.4.1, and 1.4.2
- FSNLP Chapter 3: Linguistic Essentials
- Sections 3.1, 3.2, and 3.3
Note: Sections do not include subsections, e.g., you are required to read Section 3.1, but not 3.1.1. Of course, feel free to read them as well if you want to!
Text Analysis and Retrieval course starts on Friday, March 9 at 11:15 a.m. in lecture room D-273. Welcome aboard!
