This specialization is a joint program with the Computer Science and Statistics departments at UBC. Through this program, we equip our graduates with the skills to turn language-related data into applicable knowledge and to build Artificial Intelligence (AI) that can interpret human language.

Our courses are taught by faculty members who are key experts in their fields including: linguistics, computer science, and statistics. Additionally, students will be required to complete a capstone project in order to apply their acquired knowledge, while working with their peers and real-life data sets.
