Welcome to the Wiki of the seminar '''Efficient Natural Language Processing''' in the winter semester 2011 / 2012

This seminar is over, aus und vorbei.

This seminar was given by Prof. Dr. Hannah Bast, assisted by Elmar Haußmann. The seminar took place every Wednesday, 2:15 pm - 3:45 pm, in the seminar room 01-018 in building 101. Our first session was on Wednesday, October 26, 2011. The last session was on Wednesday, February 15, 2012.

There was no session on Wednesday, November 9, 2011 because Prof. Bast was out of town. On Wednesday December 28, 2011 and on Wednesday January 4, 2012 there were no session due to the christmas break. That was 14 sessions altogether. All sessions were recorded (video + audio).

The topics and dates were assigned in the first session. Here is a tentative list of topics (each of were explained in the first session): POS tagging, text chunking, entity recognition, clause identification, semantic role labeling, syntax parsing, grammars, super-tagging, sentence simplification, machine learning teachniques, question answering, entity retrieval, NLP systems and applications.


Remark about the video recordings: we have prepared videos in different formats, in particular: .m4v, .mp4, and .wmv. If you click on one of the links "Video recording" you get that format of which our script thinks that it best fits your device / operating system / browser. If you explicitly want a particular format, simply copy the link address and add the desired extension by hand.
