The Department of Sanskrit Studies of the University of Hyderabad introduces a new programme “P.G. Diploma in Sanskrit Computational Linguistics” under the Innovative Scheme of UGC from 2014–15.
GOAL: To train Sanskrit scholars in the emerging field of Sanskrit Computational Linguistics showing the relevance of Indian grammatical theories to the field of Computational Linguistics, thereby bridging the gap between the past and the present.
This programme belongs to an emerging and hightech area of Natural Language Processing. The past few years have seen considerable growth in the field of Sanskrit Computational Linguistics. Five International conferences have been held in the past in this area. This course aims at desciminating this knowledge to the Sanskrit scholars. In order to deliver better technology, there is a need to train the man power so that they can take up the challanges thrown open by the new emerging field and provide meaningful solutions. This programme aims for it.
