The Computational Linguistics Group at Oxford University consists of faculty members, researchers and students working on the scientific study of language from a computational perspective. We develop computational models of various linguistic phenomena, often with the aim of building practical natural language processing systems.
Our research interests span a broad range of topics in Computational Linguistics and Natural Language Processing. Recent focus areas include:
- compositional semantics using distributional models
- deep learning
- variational Bayesian inference
- nonparametric Bayesian modelling
- statistical machine translation and language modelling
