NLP (Natural Language Processing),along with AI,ML and DL,is among the current industry buzzwords. Is there,however,enough of "L" in NLP? What is the role of Linguistics in NLP? How would the study of Linguistics benefit NLP? Rule based approach vs. data driven approach? Is there a balance? Should there be a balance? What happens and what should happen? These are some of the questions that will be addressed in this seminar. It will give an overview of the current applications,trends and more importantly their basis or the theoretical background in Linguistics,on which they are founded (but acknowledge it only hesitatingly).
