Organiser UKRI Centre for Doctoral Training in NLP

Organiser of Virtual Open Day - UKRI CDT in Natural Language Processing

The UKRI Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Natural Language Processing is jointly run by the School of Informatics and the School of Philosophy, Psychology and Language Sciences at the University of Edinburgh with funding from the UKRI.  Its aim is to equip students with the fundamental skills for advanced research in NLP and language science, giving them foundations in: linguistics; machine learning, statistics, algorithms; programming; working with other modalities such as vision; and design, ethics, and responsible innovation as they apply to NLP systems.

The CDT brings together researchers in NLP, speech, linguistics, cognitive science, and design informatics from across the University of Edinburgh.  Students are supervised by a body of over 60 world-class faculty and benefit from cutting edge computing and experimental facilities. The CDT also involves industrial partners.
