Welcome to the Minnesota NLP group

Minnesota NLP is a research group in CSE department at the University of Minnesota - Twin Cities. Our group aims to develop human-centered language technologies. We are an inter-disciplinary team drawing theories from linguistics, social sciences, and cognitive sciences, developing state-of-the-art machine learning algorithms, and validating their robustness and practical values throughout human-computer interaction.

Minnesota NLP seminars are held bi-weekly for anyone interested in NLP.

We are looking for passionate students to join the team (see openings).
