Natural Language Processing at Mohamed bin Zayed University of Artificial Intelligence focuses on system development that allows computers to communicate with people using everyday language.


The Natural Language Processing programme is offered by Mohamed bin Zayed University of Artificial Intelligence.

Natural language generation systems convert information from the computer database into readable or audible human language and vice versa. 

Such systems also enable sophisticated tasks such as inter-language translation, semantic understanding, text summarization and holding a dialog. 

The key applications of NLP algorithms include interactive voice response applications, automated translators, digital personal assistants (e.g., Siri, Cortana, Alexa), chatbots, and smart word processors.

Upon completion of the program requirements, the graduate will be able to:

  • Demonstrate highly specialized understanding of the computational techniques for analyzing and modelling textual and speech data with applications to real-world scenarios.
  • Have a deep understanding of the syntactic and semantic structures in speech and textual data (e.g. the predicate-argument structure).
  • Obtain advanced capabilities to implement cutting-edge NLP algorithms, and benchmark the achieved results.
  • Have the capability to formulate their own research questions, analyze the existing body of knowledge, propose and develop solutions to new problems.
  • Obtain expertise in using and deploying NLP related programming tools for a variety of NLP problems.
  • Work independently as well as part of a team, in a collegial manner, on NLP-related projects.
  • Manifest the right learning attitude during coursework and research that clearly shows ownership, personal and technical growth and responsibility.
  • Effectively communicate experimental results and research findings orally and in writing, and critique existing body of work.
