Computational linguistics is an interdisciplinary scientific field that studies the structure of written and spoken language from a computational perspective. A computational understanding of language provides insight into thinking and intelligence, and it is a fast-growing field with many applications in computer science and AI.
The Independence Linguistics club will discuss language learning, work on logic puzzles and also form a team to participate in the North American Computational Linguistics Olympiad in January. NACLO is a contest in which high-school students solve linguistic problems. In solving these problems, students learn about the diversity and consistency of language, while exercising logic skills. Started in 2006, NACLO aims to promote Computational Linguistics and Linguistics in general in North America.
***The club is sponsored by Ms. Meghan Linsley and is led by Shantanu Patel ***
Who Can Participate in this club?
No prior knowledge of linguistics or a second language is necessary.
Club Meets and Schedule
