NLP Research Group at TMU tackles these problems.

NLP for second language learners

We apply NLP techniques to help Japanese/English/Chinese as a second language learners. Research topics includes grammatical error detection/correction, text simplification and automatic essay scoring.

Machine translation

We focus (neural) machine translation considering deep linguistic knowledge such as semantic and discourse. We aim at developing a robust neural machine translation system for low-resource language pairs. We also apply sequence to sequence translation to various kinds of tasks such as grammatical error correction.

NLP Applications and text mining

We conduct research on machine learning based web mining. We target several NLP application tasks such as information extraction, sentiment analysis and text summarization.

Natural language understanding

We aim at understanding natural language though predicate argument structure analysis, semantic role labeling and word sense disambiguation.
