Natural Language Processing Lab

The NLP Lab at VT is mainly working on the fields of Natural Language Processing, Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence. We are particularly interested in building efficient models and benchmarks that can encourage machines to perform human-level intelligence, especially for information extraction, multimodal reasoning, machine reading comprehension and natural language generation. We are grateful to DARPA, U.S. Air Force, Amazon (AWS and Alexa AI), Meta AI, Google, and Intuit for supporting our research!
