Language Technologies are all those computer technologies whose aim is human language. They were initially born as a branch of Artificial Intelligence with the aim of providing machines with the ability to process textual information and interact with their environment through the language of people themselves (Natural Language Processing). It is therefore an area with a strong interdisciplinary component (Computer Science, Logic, Maths, Cognitive Psychology, Linguistics, etc.).
Currently, Language Technologies are present in systems that we use in our daily life such as search engines, automatic translators, recommenders, conversational agents (chatbots), etc. They are also the technologies used by companies to adjust their advertising messages to our profile or to monitor the reputation of people and organizations on the web and social networks.
Therefore, it is a multidisciplinary specialty that requires a high technical knowledge both in computer science and in statistical models and machine learning. The objective of this Master's Degree is to provide students with this knowledge as well as to guide them in its practical application.
The UNED Master's Degree in Language Technologies is a demanding, research-oriented master's degree with an extensive final project (750 hours) under individualized supervision.
