Natural Language Processing Research Lab


VRU-NLP performs research and engineering based on NLP techniques and its expertise in computational linguistics, software engineering and information technology. It just has started and its focus is on Persian Language. Persian Language (Farsi) with complicated morphology and unique grammatical structure is interesting language for computational linguists. More over, the lack of sophisticated resources and algorithms for different applications of NLP, has opened a new field to research.

The goal is after making the basic tools for Farsi language processing, extending the applications of Farsi NLP into various area such as Information Extraction (IE), Information Retrieval (IR) and machine translations. We try to collaborate with organization producing a large amount of text annually such as hospitals, newspapers,... and help them with processing their data.
