USL to hold Research Talks in Northern Luzon

University of Saint Louis, in collaboration with the Computing Society of the Philippines through the Special Interest Group in Natural Language Processing (CSP SIG-NLP) and the Center for Language Technologies of De La Salle University, will hold a two-day research workshop on July 4-5, 2014.

The activity has the theme, “BLAZING THE TRAILS: Research Talks in Northern Luzon”, a creative and innovative undertaking to revolutionize research endeavors in Northern Luzon.

The training program will focus on research in general with the intention of relating learning to specific projects and applications in natural language processing (NLP) where the attendees can participate in.

Natural Language Processing (NLP) is a field of research that deals with analyzing, understanding and generating the languages that humans use. It combines insights from linguistics and computer science to produce applications like machine translation, information retrieval, and spell checking; all these applications pose strong future impact to business, education, and the wider society in general.

This endeavor will foster research collaboration with the speakers from De La Salle University and/or among the participating HEIs.
