Computational Linguistics and Information Processing at Maryland

The CLIP laboratory at Maryland is engaged in designing algorithms and building systems which allow computers to effectively and efficiently perform human language-related tasks and is part of the broader language science initiative at Maryland. The lab is a part of the University of Maryland Institute for Advanced Computer Studies (UMIACS), and is composed of faculty, researchers, and students spanning multiple departments:


We're located in AVW 3126. The group’s research covers most of the major areas of language research, including but not limited to speech recognition, handwriting and optical character recognition, multilingual text processing such as machine translation, and language data exploitation applications including document summarization, sense-making across structured data such as ontologies and thesauri, information retrieval, ranking and personalization, and computational social science.

Natural language research focuses on several areas of broadscale multilingual processing, e.g., machine translation, summarization, scalable translingual document detection, cross-language information retrieval, and computational social science.
