Computational Linguistics (CL) deals with understanding and developing computational theories of human language. Such theories allow us to understand the structure of language and build computer software that can process language. For example, if a query in English, Hindi or Telugu can be processed (that is, analyzed and understood) by the machine, then it can try to find an answer from a given database or from a set of documents. A search engine of the future is likely to use such a technology.
There is a great emphasis today on machine learning where the machine learns from real life language data. Consequently, the field is close to both Linguistics as well as Artificial Intelligence.

This programme provides students an understanding of natural language as viewed from computation. It prepares them to understand computational models and how natural language data can be prepared or analyzed while building systems. The programme is specially designed for linguists, language scholars, Sanskrit scholars and the likes. Students with a science or mathematics background and with a strong interest in the analytical or computational study of language too can pursue this program.Click here for more information.
The goal of the programme is to give a general high level breadth in the area of Computational Linguistics and its related disciplines, and to carry out original in-depth research work on a problem in Computational Linguistics.Click here for more information.
