Cornell NLP

The Cornell Natural Language Processing Group is a diverse team of researchers interested in computational models of human language and machine learning. We apply a computational lens to a broad set of projects in the areas of linguistic analysis, natural language understanding systems, social science, and humanities. We are a cross-campus group located both in Ithaca and the new Tech campus in NYC.

A small sampling of problems we are interested in are (in alphabetical order): argumentation mining, grounded language learning, information and opinion extraction, lexicon and grammar induction, paraphrase acquisition, situated language understanding, syntactic parsing, question-answering, semantic parsing, sentiment analysis, similarity-based methods, and text summarization.
