Syllabus
Natural Language Processing Systems
See Course Catalog for prerequisites.
Topic for fall 2019: Extracting Entities from Real-World Data. Prerequisites for fall 2019: COSI 114b and COSI 140b. Description for fall 2019: This course explores the construction of natural language processing systems to extract and link entities found in real-world, user-created data for the purpose of representing how users interact with those entities. The challenges of building such a system are different from common information extraction research, which has focused on identifying standard types of entities (people, organizations, locations, etc.) from newswire text. Students will adapt a provided Python framework for entity extraction to develop an end-to-end system. Through assignments and a final project, students will perform every step required to develop their system, including annotation, error analysis, testing, and evaluation.
