Can computers understand our language?

20 March 2013

The automatic processing of human language plays an increasingly important role in our daily lives. Search engines and translation tools on the internet are excellent examples of this phenomenon. Johan Bos, professor of Computational Semantics, is attempting to make human language more understandable to computers. Linguists everywhere can contribute via the ‘Groningen Meaning Bank’.

The weekly online video magazine Unifocus highlights topics related to the University of Groningen in the fields of research and society, student life, teaching, policy and internationalization.
