Information Processing

The Natural Language and Information Processing (NLIP) research group at the University of Essex has been conducting cutting edge inter-disciplinary research for over 40 years, working with exciting and successful industrial partners.

Natural language processing (including information retrieval, text analytics, semantics, language theory, and their intersections) have been a key area of our research for over 40 years.

Information processing and computer vision are at the heart of the multi-modal research we conduct, from healthcare applications to running shared tasks through CLEF and MediaEval.

Set up as a complement to the Coral Reef Research Unit in the School of Life Sciences, we research the crossover of engineering and computer science in marine science and conservation.
