Overview of NLP Group at Northeastern University, China
Founded in 1980 by Prof. Tianshun Yao and now led by Prof. Jingbo Zhu, Natural Language Processing
Laboratory at Northeastern University (东北大学自然语言处理实验室), located in Shenyang China, has long
been involved in the research of omputational linguistics, focusing on language parsing, text mining, and
machine translation etc.
After over two decades' sustained work by its talented staff and students, NEU-NLPLab ranks among the top notch research bases with its high international prestige, advanced theoretical research and well-established industrial development capabilities.
Our research covers a range of topics in natural language processing (自然语言处理), including:
Machine Translation (机器翻译): Our current work in MT is focused on phrase-based and syntax-based SMT, involving string-to-tree and tree-to-string SMT. We have also studied example-based and pattern-based MT, and document-level translation techniques.
Language Parsing (语言分析): Our work in this area includes segmentation, POS tagging, chunking, semantic role labeling, relation extraction, syntactic parsing and semantic parsing.
Text Mining (文本挖掘): In this area we are focusing on text segmentation, classification, sentiment analysis and opinion mining, patent retrieval and mining, summarization, IE, and ontology learning.
