Tampere Natural Language Processing (NLP) Group

Our multidisciplinary group works on Natural Language Processing at Tampere University. We work in close collaboration with the groups by Profs Kostas Stefanidis and Jaakko Peltonen, both listed as members of the group.

Research focus and goals

We focus on various problems in Natural Language Processing, such as question answering, text analysis, chat systems, text mining, with applications such as

  • information retrieval
  • political text analysis
  • analysis of narratives and temporalities
  • product recommendations and analysis
  • NLP interfaces to intelligent spaces

We participate in multi-disciplinary research with researchers from e.g. social sciences, humanities, marketing. 

We apply both rule-based such as grammatical approaches as well as machine learning and data mining.
