We are delighted to host Professor Ann Copestake, Head of the Department of Computer Science and Technology here in Cambridge. Ann, who specialises in Natural Language Processing (NLP), will be giving a talk on the intersection between language and artificial intelligence.

Ann writes: “Some of the earliest usable AI systems involved NLP - there were commercial machine translation systems and natural language interfaces to databases over forty years ago. But NLP is very far from solved, even using the immensely powerful neural network approaches that have become so popular in the last few years. I will start by talking about the state-of-the-art and describing some of the properties of language that make working in NLP so challenging. I will then go on to outline some of the work we have been doing in Cambridge on linguistically-informed neural approaches.” This talk is sure to be fascinating for anyone interested in artificial intelligence and linguistics!
