The Cognitive NLP lab

The Cognitive NLP lab has been established as a part of Center for Indian Language Technology (CFILT) with a view to uncover the neuro-cognitive underpinnings of Human Language Processing. The insights gained through such research are expected to be translated into better algorithms in Natural Language Processing/ Computational Linguistics. We are currently located inside CFILT in the basement of Mathematics Building at IIT Bombay.

Recent research at Cognitive NLP lab includes understanding the cognitve sub-processes of human language translation, sentiment analysis, sarcasm detction, text-reading, understanding and annotation effort using eye-tracking technology.
