NALA Group

Welcome to our group!

Welcome to the website of the von der Wense Natural Language Processing Group (NALA), whose two homes are University of Colorado Boulder, USA, and Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz, Germany! We develop computational models for the understanding or generation of natural language. Some of our current areas of interest are:

  • Universal natural language processing and transfer learning
  • Natural language processing for educational applications
  • Computational morphology
  • Low-resource machine translation
  • Language grounding
  • Natural language processing for medical applications

More details can be found here. Also check out the websites of NLP for Indigenous Languages of the Americas (AmericasNLP) and the Second Workshop on Corpus Generation and Corpus Augmentation for Machine Translation (CoCo4MT), which members of NALA are co-organizing, and the website of Pangea Chat, an NSF-funded start-up Katharina is advising.
