Reading Group

Official name of this course is NPFL095 Modern Methods in Computational Linguistics. It is a continuation of informal Reading Group (RG) meetings. For inspiration see the wishlist. Requirements for getting credits: presenting one paper, writing a report about another presented paper, and active participation in the discussions (which is conditioned by reading the papers in advance and attending the meetings).
