Lab assignment schedule
First of all, you need to be an undergraduate student at TTI.
Usually, we advertise opportunities to join our lab as 4th year project member in the
We accept 5 or 6 students, depending on the total number of 4th year students.
- Nov.: Lab introduction (3-5 times in a month)
- Early Dec.: Deadline for an application
- Mid-Dec.: Decision of acceptance
- April: Start of 4th year projects
Acceptance (or rejection) will be determined based on the university rules,
which means that when students more than the limit apply, the university decides
who should be selected based on their specified priority and GPA scores.
2. Preferable skills
We presume that you have already taken courses/modules in the computer science
area. On the top of that, it is important that you have a strong interest
in natural language processing or artificial intelligence.
It will be a gift if you are good at mathematical logic, statistics, and/or
information theory as well as computer programming and English.
However, please do not worry about it.
We will give sufficient instructions if we find your lack of some essential
knowledge. Of course, you need to work very hard to fill the gap. This is for sure.
3. Research topics
We decide your project theme based on a face-to-face meeting with new lab members.
We enumerate several research topics when we advertise our lab in November.
Basically, you will be assigned one of the topics. However, if you propose a
really nice topic that fits our lab's targeted areas and that is suitable for
the 4th year project (in terms of difficultly and timeline), you might be
allowed to proceed the topic.
We recommend you read one or two text books in natural language processing before
you join the lab.
We accept 3 master course students, plus students authorized under
the Double Degree agreements with other partner universities.
If you are not TTI studnets, please contact me before you send your
Master Course application form to TTI.
We are seeking for a few Ph.D. course students.
Successful candidates will be those who got (will get) a Master's degree
in NLP, AI, ML, or Program Theory. Please contact me if your are interested.
