In recent years, research on natural language processing has developed greatly in parallel with the distribution of huge language data and advances in machine learning and deep learning. However, a number of breakthroughs are still necessary for developing artificial intelligence that "understands" a language. At the Natural Language Understanding Team, we will conduct research on fundamental technologies for understanding languages by computers through by creating new tasks for automatic assessment of human language activities, such as reviewing argumentation and descriptive responses in pedagogical contexts. We aim to extend upon the frontier of language processing in both basic research and applied research while collaborating with the Language Information Access Technology Team and other teams in the Generic Technology Research Group.
