The NLP group has a distinctive emphasis on what can be
called Language Engineering research, rather than a focus on the
properties of representations as such. We do not take that to imply
just a concentration on applications, though we like to be practical,
but rather an emphasis on solutions to problems through procedures, on
the assumption that those procedures often turn out to have
interesting theoretical properties as well. Our developing programme
in NLP will seek to link to speech, AI, neural net and vision research
(within the department) as well as to a range of NLP-related areas
under the general aegis of ILASH, such as medical research, speech
pathology, and information retrieval.
