-===== 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. Requirements for getting credits: ​ 
-  * presenting one paper, 
-    * Select a term (write your name to the schedule below) before Feb 25. 
-    * If no paper is assigned to the term, suggest [[mailto:​popel@ufal.mff.cuni.cz|me]] 2--3 papers you would like to present (with pdf links, and your preferences) before March 4. Ideally, make a group of 2--4 students presenting papers on a common topic (starting from basics to more advance papers). 
-    * Prepare your presentation and 3--6 quiz questions. At least 3 of the questions should ask for a specific answer, e.g. "write an equation for...",​ "given training set X=([dog,​N],​[cat,​Y]),​ what is the number..."​ (Not "what do you think about..."​). The first question should be quite easy to answer for those who have read the whole paper. The last question may be a tricky one. Send me the questions two weeks before your presentation. We may discuss the paper and refine the questions. 
-    * One week before the presentation,​ write the questions to a dedicated wiki page here. Send a reminder (questions and a link to the pdf of the paper) to rg@ufal.mff.cuni.cz ([[http://​ufal.mff.cuni.cz/​mailman/​listinfo/​rg|subscribe]] first) by Monday 16:00. 
-    * One week after the presentation (at the latest), write your (or the best) answers below the questions, plus a summary of interesting points discussed at the presentation (report).
