The 2nd International workshop on artificial intelligence for natural language processing (IA&NLP’21) will be held in conjunction with The 12th International Conference on Emerging Ubiquitous Systems and Pervasive Networks (EUSPN) November 1-4, 2021, Leuven, Belgium

Artificial intelligence (AI) and natural language processing (NLP) in recent years have shown promising results. Research in these areas has made substantial progress in providing a better understanding of the various aspects of the natural language processing and artificial intelligence.

Artificial intelligence (AI) aims to simulate human intelligence in machines programmed to think like humans and imitate their actions. The term can also be applied to any machine that exhibits traits associated with a human mind such as learning and problem solving. It is at the heart of many high performance applications that shape our daily lives and others that are very promising are about to come. 

Natural language processing (NLP) is a technology whose objective is communication between the computer and the human being on the same level. The NLP combines knowledge from linguistics with the latest methods of computer science and artificial intelligence. These techniques are used for translation and word processing, chatbots and in many digital assistants.

The aim is also to provide an overview of recent advances applications and challenges in artificial intelligence, natural language processing and artificial intelligence for NLP. Furthermore, this workshop offers an opportunity for researchers and practitioners to identify new promising research directions as well as to present the latest achievements, ideas and innovations in this area.
