NALA Group

Welcome to our group!

Welcome to the website of CU Boulder’s Natural Language Processing (NALA) Group! 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

More details can be found here. Please also check out the websites of the First Workshop on NLP for Indigenous Languages of the Americas (AmericasNLP), the Fourth Workshop on Technologies for MT of Low Resource Languages (LoResMT 2021) and the ICLR 2021 Workshop on Weakly Supervised Learning (WeaSuL), which members of our group are co-organizing!
