Natural Language Processing (NLP) is an influential topic that relates to Artificial Intelligence, Linguistics and Human Computer Interaction. NLP engineers are in high demand at companies such as Google, Facebook, Twitter, Yahoo and Microsoft that require sophisticated analysis of text on the internet. This course covers a range of theoretical and applied topics related to how computers interpret human language, and also how computers can generate human language; for example, to summarise data. Topics include grammar formalisms and algorithms for parsing sentences, natural language semantics, text analytics using sentiment analysis, machine translation, grammar checking and natural language generation from data.
