How can we build and analyze systems for enabling users to communicate with computers using human language (also called natural language), and for automatically processing the vast amounts of data on the web available in the form of text? The focus covers appropriate material on natural language interfaces, as well as tools such as document summarization, intelligent search over the web, and so on. Students considering this focus are encouraged to consider a second Major in Linguistics. [Note 0.5 FCEs in LIN are in addition to the 12.0 FCEs required to complete the Specialist program]
- CSC401H1, CSC485H1
- 1.5 FCE from the following: CSC309H1, CSC321H1, CSC330H1, CSC411H1, CSC428H1, CSC486H
- 0.5 FCE from the following: PSY100H1, COG250Y1
Suggested Related Courses:
Other relevant CSC courses, depending on the student's interests, include other courses in artificial intelligence such as CSC384H1 or CSC420H1. Linguistics, Psychology, and Cognitive Science are all directly relevant to this concentration, and we recommend that interested students take additional courses from any or all of them.
