Welcome to Tsujii Laboratory

The Tsujii Laboratory at the University of Tokyo (1995-2012) was a research group with more than 120 members in total, focused on Natural Language Processing (NLP) and Computational Linguistics (CL). At TsujiiLab, our goal was to design, develop and implement approaches that allow computers to work with human languages, taking advantage of the rapid growth of human-readable information widely available in electronic form.

Our interests ranged from fundamental research in areas such as syntactic/semantic parsing and machine learning, to practical applications, such as text mining, machine translation and information retrieval. Our projects combined the strengths of research based on the principles of Linguistics and Computer Science, development of practical approaches based on this research, and application of these techniques to real problems.

The group cooperated closely with UK National Centre for Text Mining (NaCTeM) in Manchester, UK. Professor Tsujii was the Scientific Director of the centre.
