Language Modeling for Natural Language Processing
Lecturer: Youssef Oualil
Location: Seminarraum (Seminar Room) C7.2
Time: Block Seminar in August/September 2017
Registration: Due to the high number of students who already registered for this seminar. The registration is now closed.
Please notice that we have a limited number of slots for this seminar. Students who could not be on the main list will be move to the waiting list. This decision is based on the registrations date/time order.
Course Summary: In this seminar, we will review and discuss language modeling with a particular focus on its application to natural language processing tasks.
Seminar Format and Grading: Each of the participants will be assigned a paper or a book chapter (based on his/her preferences) that he/she needs to study and present to the rest of the group for a 50% of the grade. The remaining 50% is evaluated based on the final report following the seminar.
