This is an advanced research-centric course to introduce the most up-to-date techniques in Information Extraction and Knowledge Acquisition, which aim to create the next generation of information access in which humans can communicate with computers in any natural language beyond keyword search, and computers can discover accurate, concise, and trustable information and knowledge embedded in big data from heterogeneous sources.
