Dr. Ng gave a terrific talk on the field of natural language processing which combines many disciplines to address pressing problems. He also introduced many of our students to the problems they will encounter on the North American Computational Linguistics Olympiad being held at UTD.
To help participants prepare for NACLO, Dr. Ng will host a problem session this Sunday to go over selected NACLO problems. Here are the date and location of the problem session:
Date and Time: Sunday, Jan 25, 2-5 PM
Location: Room 2.201, Engineering and Computer Science South Building, University of Texas at Dallas
