Cornell researchers in natural language processing are interested in computational models of human language and machine learning, applying a computational lens to a broad set of projects in the areas of linguistic analysis, natural language understanding systems, social science, and humanities.

Representing Cornell's two campuses and several university departments, NLP scholars use computational methods to dig deeper into the words we use and apply that analysis to a wide range of topics – from online trolling and bias in tennis reporting, to the language of both persuasion and betrayal.
