Language & Text

Course
2012-2013

Speech and text are very special media because they enable to express relatively complex information. Therefore, the usage of speech and text is a privilege to humans. This course discusses the structure of language and how this structure plays a role in the automatic generating of speech and text.

Topics that are dealt with are amongst others state-of-the-art language regenerating systems and their diverse applications. During lab-time students will experiment with software that automatically generates poems.
