Section Description

In this course, we will explore recent advances in computing for augmenting natural language. We will cover foundational theories of communication and investigate new advances in interactive computing and artificial intelligence that aim to improve how we communicate with one another. We will learn how to build and evaluate human-centered language technologies for improving human communication (e.g., intelligent reading and writing tools). We will focus class on in-person discussions around research papers and scientific advances. Students will be expected to read papers, post reading reflections, share and comment on papers and ideas, and lead at least one class discussion. The class will culminate in a research project focused on building or evaluating interactive systems and current language technologies. This course is specifically aimed at graduate students interested in conducting research in interactive computing and natural language processing. As such, students should have a g
