There is an evaluation of this course for the fall semester 2008 here.
There is an analysis (in Swedish) of this course for the fall semester 2008 here.
Schedule and Content
Course RequirementsThere are four course requirements:
You may do the laborations in groups of two, but the individual project is individual.
Individual ProjectAt the third meeting you will present the results of your individual project. The project should typically consist of a practical experiment on any aspect of clustering of some linguistic data and be described in a course report. The course focus on clustering of texts, but most methods are applicable to other objects as well.
An idea is to try to submit your work to the Workshop on Unsupervised Methods at SLTC 2008 (The Swedish Language Technology Conference).
InfomatHere you can download the latest (inofficial) Infomat version. If there is a link here it is newer than the one on the Infomat hompage. These versions only contain small bug fixes.
