ADAPT has an exciting opportunity for a funded Research Masters position.
User-Generated Content (UGC) describes content that has been created online without having gone through a review process for quality, grammatical correctness, clear structure, etc. UGC text is usually found on online forums, social media platforms, and blogging platforms. As the amount of online data increases, the demand for tools to process and interpret this data also increases. Natural Language Processing (NLP) tools are used to facilitate the processing of large textual data. However, when it comes to UGC, standard tools and the approaches to developing them need to be tailored to cater for such `noisy’ text.
