Course Renamed & Will be Offered for Graduate Students Faculty-Wide

is a newly renamed course that is in its essence a humanities-friendly introduction to Natural Language Processing (NLP). The course is now in the process of being revamped and updated. Its content is in flux due to the latest research and development in the field, and the active uptake of these technologies (such as Siri, Alexa, and Google Translate) by the general public. The course is likely to be offered in the 2021/2022 academic year, after Dr. Rubin’s Sabbatical (in 2020/2021). [It was last formally offered as LIS 9732/9832: LANGUAGE AND COMPUTER TECHNOLOGIES FOR LIBRARIES AND BEYOND described here].
