ML@GT Further Establishes Itself in Natural Language Processing Community

Over the years, the Machine Learning Center at Georgia Tech (ML@GT) has steadily been increasing its presence in the natural language processing (NLP) community. With a few new hires this fall and a big performance at this year’s Conference on Empirical Methods in Natural Language Processing (EMNLP), ML@GT is becoming a major player in the field.

With 10 papers accepted to the main EMNLP conference and three papers at a new, coinciding sister publication called Findings of EMNLP, Georgia Tech researchers are tackling problems like how to summarize text and interpreting how persuasive language impacts domains advertising and argumentation.
