The Computational Linguistics and Linguistic Theory (COLT) group combines traditional theoretical linguistic methods with quantitative and computational tools to study how language works. Its focus is on computational modeling, using techniques from Artificial Intelligence (in particular data-driven methods from Machine Learning, such as Neural Networks and Deep Learning). A specific interest of the group is semantics, or the study of meaning, and we are exploring it with methods that can induce semantic representations directly from examples of how people use language. COLT belongs to the Research Unit in Linguistics (UR-LING).
