The massive use of the Internet has increased the need for natural language processing solutions. For example, supplementary linguistic processing is essential to accurately search for the information we are interested in.
Have a look at the following Internet sites:
But... how do these applications work? If you are a computer specialist or an engineer, you may be wondering which the basic computing tools working behind them are or how you can integrate these applications within other applications or the web.
If you are a philologist or linguist, you probably ask yourself how linguistic knowledge is used in them: lexicon, grammar, word-senses, or how morphological, syntactic and semantic analyses are performed automatically.
The Basque Government has identified Linguistic Info-engineering as one of their strategic research lines. Therefore, new researchers (computer scientists and linguists) are required to perform Research and Development in this field.
We have been running this programme since the 2001-2002 academic year.
