DC NLP September 2014 Meetup Announcement: Natural Language Processing for Assistive Technologies

Curious about techniques and methods for applying data science to unstructured text? Join us at the DC NLP September Meetup!

This month, we're joined by Kathy McCoy, Professor of Computer & Information Science and Linguistics at the University of Delaware. Kathy is also a consultant for the National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research (NIDRR) at the U.S. Department of Education. Her research focuses on natural language generation and understanding, particularly for assistive technologies, and she'll be giving a presentation on Replicating Semantic Connections Made by Visual Readers for a Scanning System for Nonvisual Readers.
