Who should attend

Technically oriented professionals with some programming and statistics background who work with language and technology, or who want to enter the field.

About the course

When you talk to your mobile device or car navigation system — or it talks to you — you’re experiencing the fruits of developments in natural language processing. This field, which focuses on the creation of software that can analyze and understand human languages, has grown rapidly in recent years and now has many technological applications.

In this three-course certificate program, we’ll explore the foundations of computational linguistics, the academic discipline that underlies NLP. You’ll delve into the various technical principles of language processing techniques, gain expertise in specialized NLP algorithms, and consider the wide variety of applications for these cutting-edge skills.

WHAT YOU’LL LEARN

  • The science behind predictive text messaging, speech recognition, dialogue systems and information extraction
  • Techniques and algorithms for associating surface-level structures and information with natural language corpora
  • Probability and statistics as they relate to the discipline
  • Applications of natural language technologies in biomedical informatics, litigation support, media and advertising, and other fields

EARN CREDIT TOWARD YOUR MASTER'S DEGREE

By completing this certificate program, you can earn up to 12 graduate credits toward degree requirements should you later be accepted into the Master of Science in Computational Linguistics. To use these credits, you must obtain graduate nonmatriculated status before you register for the first course of the certificate program.
