About this Course

Techniques and algorithms for associating relatively surface-level structures and information with natural language corpora.

Topics include:

  • Word segmentation/tokenization
  • Morphological analysis
  • Part-of-Speech
  • Language Modeling
  • Named entity recognition
  • Chunk parsing
  • Word-sense disambiguation
  • Linguistic resources that can be leveraged for these tasks (e.g., treebanks)

These techniques allow you to locate items of interest (e.g., product names, diagnoses, proper names) in running text, correlate their occurrences with each other and normalize text for further processing.

Program Overview

You must complete two required courses and one elective course to earn the certificate.

You may be able to take individual courses without enrolling in the certificate program; check the course pages for details.
