Labs, Groups, and Projects

This page contains information about individual research projects, groups, and laboratories studying NLP topics at CUNY. For more information about additional projects, please consult the websites of the faculty members listed on the people page.

ACL: Algorithms for Computational Linguistics Group

This group at Queens College is focused on theoretical issues in computational linguistics, in particular, efficient algorithms and data structures for parsing and machine translation, linear-time algorithms, and grammar formalisms. This group also studies structured learning theory (esp. under inexact inference) and online learning theory (esp. online approximations of SVM and parallelizing online learning), and tries to scale them up for big-data in practice. Their work has been at the intersection of NLP with compiler theory and programming language, psycholinguistics, theoretical computer science, and computational biology.

The Speech Lab

This laboratory at CUNY Queens College conducts research into how speech communicates information, with a particular focus on computational approaches to understanding prosody and intonation. The lab also investigates how deception operates in spoken communication.
