Computational Linguistics

  • Computational Linguistics



Studies in Computational Linguistics at UC will give you applied skills in computer modelling language, speech processing, psycholinguistics, and machine learning for use in language technologies.

Computational Linguistics has a wide range of applications in industry – from analysing public opinion on social media platforms, to creating speech-recognition interactions with smart systems, to developing multi-translation tools.

More research and practical knowledge is needed in this field as language becomes increasingly digitised, and human-machine interactions continue to evolve.
