 +===== Reading Group =====  
 +Official name of this course is [[https://is.cuni.cz/studium/predmety/index.php?do=predmet&kod=NPFL095|NPFL095]] **Modern Methods in Computational Linguistics**. It is a continuation of informal Reading Group (RG) meetings.
  
 +Since 2016, the wiki is moved to https://github.com/ufal/NPFL095/wiki and the mailing list to [[https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/npfl095|npfl095@googlegroups.com]].
 +See also [[courses:rg:past|an overview of past meetings]], [[courses:rg:wishlist|an outdated wishlist]] and [[https://github.com/ufal/rg/wiki|Machine Learning RG (active in 2014)]].

(to je divné, neměly by se tedy vážit výsledky jednotlivých systémů (viz věta s "little benefit", 2.1)? A nebo není příčinou spíš než přidání šestého jazyka přidání špatného jazyka (Table 6)? Jak by dopadly testy po dvojicích?); v závěru 2.3 vynechávají reordering s odkazem na diversitu zdrojových jazyků -- to nemusí platit |  Ano  |
