Statistics and Mathematics for NLP
General details of the subject
- Face-to-face degree course
Description and contextualization of the subjectIntroduction to basic concepts of statistics in the field of natural language processing. Inferential aspects will be worked on, including the most common statistical tests, as well as interval estimation. Furthermore, basic concepts of functions and linear algebra will be introduced for Natural Language Processing tasks with the final aim of gaining understanding of the rationale behind neural networks.
