Machine Learning and Natural Language Processing

Machine Learning and Natural Language Processing

The Machine Learning and Natural Language Processing (ML-NLP) group studies systems that learn from data (machine learning), with a key focus of several members being systems that understand, produce and learn natural languages from a computational perspective (Natural Language Processing, which often uses machine learning techniques in tackling tasks such as machine translation or summarisation). We also work on systems built around machine learning in a range of other application areas as well, such as vision, games and virtual agents.


We have a weekly research seminar that meets on Mondays, 11.00 – 12.30, at 9 Wally's Walk (building E6A), room 357.

We also have a weekly Machine Learning Reading Group that meets on Wednesdays, 2.00 – 3.30, at the same location.

The weekly Image Analysis Reading Group meets on Mondays, 3.30-5.00, also at the same location.

Anyone interested is welcome to attend any of these.
