Language and Artificial Intelligence

February 12 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

This event is held in the Winstanley Lecture Theatre, Trinity College and will be followed with a wine and cheese reception.

Natural Language Processing (NLP) is a subfield of AI. Some of the earliest usable AI systems involved NLP – there were commercial machine translation systems and natural language interfaces to databases over forty years ago. But NLP is very far from solved, even using the immensely powerful neural network approaches that have become so popular in the last few years.

Professor Copestake, Head of the Department of Computer Science and Technology, University of Cambridge, will start by talking about the state-of-the-art and describing some of the properties of language that make working in NLP so challenging. She will then go on to outline some of the work we have been doing in Cambridge on linguistically-informed neural approaches.
