The application of computational methods to problems in natural-language processing. In particular we examine techniques due to recent advances in deep learning: word embeddings, recurrent neural networks (e.g., LSTMs), sequence-to-sequence models, and generative adversarial networks (GANs). Programming projects include parsing, machine translation, question answering, and chat-bots. The prerequisite of CS 1470 (or the equivalent background) is very important.
