Computational linguistics is the study of computer processing, understanding, and generation of human languages. It is often regarded as a subfield of artificial intelligence. Techniques from computational linguistics are used in applications such as machine translation, speech recognition, information retrieval, intelligent Web searching, and intelligent spelling checking.
The Computational Linguistics research group of the Department of Computer Science, University of Toronto, carries out research on many topics in the area.
