Natural Language Processing (NLP)

NLP is a subfield of artificial intelligence, concerned with automatically processing as well as understanding text, typically using statistical models and machine learning. The resulting models can be used for applications such as correcting grammatical errors, summarising documents, answering questions or translating texts.

In our research group, we are interested in traditional core as well as emerging topics in natural language processing. We focus on researching models that require little direct input from humans to work well, and models that work well across languages. We are further interested in exploiting different modalities, for instance visual and textual data referring to the same event from captioned images, or speech and image sequences from videos.

Our work has been reported on in several international newspapers, nominated for and awarded with several best paper awards at scientific conferences, and established Copenhagen as an international center for NLP. Since its inception in 2013, the group grown to three faculty members, and is now ranked in the top 10 of NLP groups worldwide and 2nd in Europe, according to CSRankings.
