Natural Language Processing Group

The University of Oregon NLP Group

The NLP Group at the University of Oregon employs and designs effective learning algorithms for information extraction and text mining in natural language processing and data mining. We are currently focusing on deep learning algorithms to solve such problems. We are among the first groups that develop deep learning models and demonstrate their effectiveness for information extraction.

We are also targeting other language-related problems with deep learning, including reading comprehension, machine translation, natural language generation, chatbots and language grounding.

For a better idea about our research on information extraction, check out a demo for our recent neural information extraction system (performing joint entity mention detection, relation extraction, event detection, and argument role prediction) here.
