Computational linguistics is an interdisciplinary field that addresses the use of computers to process or produce human language. Linguistics contributes to this field an understanding of the special properties of language data, and also provides theories and descriptions of language structure and use. Computational linguistics is largely an applied discipline concerned with practical problems. Typical applications include natural language processing, machine translation (translating from one language to another), speech synthesis, speech production, information retrieval (finding relevant documents or parts of documents in large collections of texts), cognitive modeling, and, in general, almost anything dealing with natural language interfaces. -

The aim of the study program “Computer Science – Language Technologies and Computational Linguistics” is to get the graduates ready for research in the area of natural language processing and the development of applications dealing with both written and spoken language. Examples of such applications are systems of information retrieval, information extraction and summarization, machine translation, text analytics, grammar checking, automatic speech recognition, spoken dialogue systems, and speech synthesis. The emphasis is put on a deep understanding of formal mathematical and algorithmic foundations and their practical applicability in natural language processing tasks. Students of the program have the possibility to focus either on theoretical aspects of formal description of natural languages or on the technology-oriented side (state-of-the-art methods in statistics, machine learning, and deep learning) for language data processing. -
