In Spring 2019 I am teaching IST 597, a course on selected topics in NLP, covering sentiment analysis, computational semantics, and computational discourse.
The course included a semester-long project to build question answering and question generation systems that operate on Wikipedia articles. Students worked in small teams of three to five, and they competed to produce the best-performing systems. You can watch the final reports from the top three teams below.
I can provide a statement of teaching philosophy and teaching references upon request.
