Course Information

  • Course Description

    The focus of this course will be on Natural Language Processing (NLP) methods, ranging from simple dictionary-based approaches to advanced, state of art methods that are based on neural networks. While some lecture time is devoted to providing an understanding of the fundamentals in the field, there will also be a special focus on applications in the social sciences. Participating students will present their results from one of the proposed focus areas and write a paper about their research.

  • Objectives

    The goal of this lab exercises is to guide students through the typical steps of a scientific data-science project from problem formulation to data acquisition, selection of methods, analysis and presentation / documentation. Students will be equipped with practical experience with conducting scientific data-science projects. They will train their presentation skills, learn to communicate in research projects and receive feedback.
