CSCI 3450 NATURAL LANGUAGE PROCESSING (3 credits)
The course will provide overview of the topics in natural language processing such as word and sentence tokenization, syntactic parsing, semantic role labeling, text classification. We will discuss fundamental algorithms and mathematical models for processing natural language, and how these can be used to solve practical problems. We will touch on such applications of natural language processing technology as information extraction and sentiment analysis. (Cross-listed with CYBR 3450).
Prerequisite(s)/Corequisite(s): Prereq: CSCI 2030 with C- or better; Co-req: CSCI 3320 with C- or better; Students should be comfortable w/ scripting (Python is the language extensively used in natural language processing tools including NLTK). Not open to non-degree graduate students.
The internet technologies (iT) concentration supplements the Computer Science (CS) curriculum by focusing on the concepts and technologies needed to implement modern web applications. The concentration is designed to supplement the CS core curriculum by introducing the programming aspects as well as the theoretical concepts needed to build the infrastructure for web systems such as search engines, social networking sites, etc. The iT concentration provides extensive hands-on, project-based experience for students.
