Public Note

This blog is a collective journal kept by participants in the Spring 2011 iteration of the Advanced Natural Language Processing Seminar (11-713) at the Language Technologies Institute at Carnegie Mellon University, taught by Noah Smith.  The participants in the course agreed for the journal to be made public in case others would find it useful.

The seminar operated as follows.  Each week, the instructor chose a focus paper from recent literature in NLP.  This was announced by Friday (usually).  By Monday, participants left a comment on the announcement saying what other paper they would read, individually, in addition to the focus paper.  On Wednesday, each participant posted a summary of the two papers.  The seminar met each Thursday, with mostly informal discussion, and students were encouraged to post follow-up thoughts for about half of the discussions.
