Why choose this programme?
The master’s programme Informatics: Language and Communication gives you the opportunity to study how computers can "make sense" of human language and how humans communicate through language.
It will provide you with advanced training in the discipline called (Human) Langauge Technology, combining skills from Computer Science, Artificial Intelligece and Linguistics. You will learn which technologies are behind services like, for example, Google Translate, Apple's Siri og the IBM Watson system.
You will further learn how the communicative system of human language can be formalized for efficient computational processing, as well as how advanced statistical models can enable computers to ‘learn’ from observed language usage.
The master's programme consists of course work and a thesis, with in-depth supervision by a multi-national group of experienced scientists. The language of instruction is English. Some courses are obligatory elements of the programme, others can be selected freely in consultation with your supervisor. The thesis is normally performed at the Department of Informatics, but you also have the opportunity to perform it somewhere else, eg. at another research institution or in cooperation with a local company..
