2nd year MSc
in Natural Language Processing
Goals of the 2nd year MSc in NLP
The 2nd year MSc in NLP offers specific courses applied to NLP such as neural networks, statistics, algorithms... The fourth semester is devoted to the master thesis.
Presentation of the 2nd year MSc in NLP
During the 2nd year MSc in NLP, you will follow courses on logic, statistics, linguistics, programming for NLP, as well as more advanced courses in NLP.
The second semester consists of a paid internship. This personal project can be carried out either in one the research centers associated with the MSc degree (ATILF or LORIA) or in the private sector.
In both cases, the project is supervised by a senior member of staff (a University lecturer or a researcher). The research project requires an original solution to a problem situated within an existing scientific domain.

DEEP LEARNING AND DATA MINING
The objective of this course unit is to acquire machine learning tools, mainly deep neural networks and factorisation matrices, to be able to manipulate these tools when considering practical applications (tweets, traces of e-learning), as well as to expand the students’ knowledge in semantic web and the extensions of analysis of formal concepts for textual and relational data processing.
TEXT AND SPEECH PROCESSING
Automatic processing of texts and of speech involves different methods of machine learning. This class will introduce these methods and illustrate their use through examples and practical application using tools developed for text and speech processing.
