Registration is now open for the 2012 North American Computational Linguistics Olympiad (NACLO). This is a contest that appeals to many students who enjoy mathematical problem solving competitions. As in past years, Dr. Vincent Ng will offer the contest at UT Dallas and will also provide a prep session before the contest.
Knowledge of specific languages is not being tested, but rather the ability of our students to detect patterns and solve problems. Computational Linguistics and Natural Language processing are two exciting fields whose benefits we experience every day when we interact with Google search or Apple’s Siri.
