Organisation profile

Natural Language Processing (NLP) uses machine learning and other techniques to parse, analyse, translate and understand texts in human languages such as English or Danish. The work of ITU NLP researchers include transfer learning, representation learning, analysis of clinical patient records, automatic summarization, corpora building, stance detection, fake news analysis, and much more.
