About us

Mission: to advance Natural Language Processing and Artificial Intelligence technology to benefit humanity
Vision: to be a globally admired research lab in Natural Language Processing and Artificial Intelligence

The Natural Language Processing (NLP) Lab at Soochow University is a team of faculty members, postdocs, and students who work together on fundamental studies that allow computers to process and understand human languages. Our work ranges from basic research in computational linguistics to key applications in human language technology, and covers areas such as syntactic parsing, shallow semantic parsing, deep pragmatic understanding, information extraction, sentiment analysis, information retrieval and statistical machine translation (SMT). Our research has resulted in various kinds of linguistic resources and state-of-the-art platforms and techniques for robust, broad-coverage natural-language processing.
The Soochow University NLP Lab is affiliated with the Jiangsu Provincial Key Laboratory for Computer Information Processing Technology, and contains three research groups, i.e. natural language understanding, Chinese computing and SMT. Meanwhile, it includes two university-level research institutes, i.e. the Zongheng Institute for Chinese computing and the Crosslingual HLT Institute for SMT.
