About

The four-year UKRI Centre for Doctoral Training in Natural Language Processing at The University of Edinburgh will give you a solid foundation in the challenge of working with language in a computational setting and its relevance to critical engineering, scientific, and ethical problems in our modern world.  

Overview

The UKRI Centre for Doctoral Training in Natural Language Processing at The University of Edinburgh is jointly run by the School of Informatics and the School of Philosophy, Psychology and Language Sciences.

NLP is transforming the way humans communicate with each other and with machines.

We have witnessed the rapid evolution of a wide range of natural language processing (NLP) systems that translate text, recognise or produce speech, answer questions, retrieve documents or facts, respond to commands, summarise articles, and simplify texts for children or non-native speakers.

The rapid proliferation of online news, social media, and scientific articles has created an exploding demand for NLP systems that enable people to derive critical insights from massive streams of data in many languages.

Our researchers

The CDT brings together researchers in NLP, speech, linguistics, cognitive science and design informatics from across the University of Edinburgh.

You will be supervised by over 60 world-class faculty and will benefit from cutting edge computing and experimental facilities.

Programme Structure

Its aim is to equip you with the fundamental skills for advanced research in NLP and language science, giving you 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
