Within the framework of the activity, the development of at least five study modules and courses intended for the acquisition of international high-level digital skills in the field of natural language processing is planned, including the wider integration of the content of these skills into the study content of various fields, as well as the creation of the necessary language resources and tools. The study and modules are available at the University of Latvia (UL) and the Riga Technical University. 




Natural language processing module for Computer science BSP

The aim of the module is to prepare high-level specialists in language technologies (LT), who are able to create solutions for LT problems and applications and are well prepared for the changing development of the industry, within the framework of bachelor's studies (BSP).




Latvian BSP and English, European languages and business studies BSP study courses

The aim of the study module is to build knowledge, skills and competence in digital humanities in the fields related to Latvian and English studies in order to develop and improve the ability to solve complex linguistic problems related to language use, learning and research, using various language resources and digital tools of text analysis.

English MSP module

The aim of the module is to provide in-depth knowledge, skills and competence for the use of language technologies in the field of linguistics and literary studies in areas related to English studies, which are necessary for professional activities in the modern digital age and the labor market, in the use of the English language, literature, language learning and translation.

Latvian language, literature and culture studies MSP module 

The aim of the module is to provide in-depth knowledge, skills and competence for the use of language technologies in the field of linguistics and literary studies in areas related to Latvian studies - in the understanding of the phonetic, morphemic and morphonological system of the Latvian language, in modern analysis and use - which are necessary for the development of synthesis and analysis of thinking abilities, systemic linguistic broadening horizons, improving data processing skills, which in turn will contribute to a possible successful entry into the labor market.

Linguistics DSP module

­The aim of the module is to improve the research and academic competence of doctoral students for independent and innovative research activities in the field of language technologies: language data retrieval and processing, development of language technology modules, improvement of language learning and translation technologies, skillfully using the possibilities offered by artificial intelligence.



Natural language processing for multimodal information processing

Study courses will also be available to non-RTU students thanks to the MOOC platform!
The study module "Natural language processing for multimodal information processing" is mainly aimed at developing in-depth and highly specialized knowledge level competencies and skills for students studying both humanities, interdisciplinary STEM+-based and information technology study programs.
The aims of the study module is to provide students with the opportunity to learn to cooperate, offering and creating solutions to interdisciplinary, multimodal information processing challenges of different levels of complexity, related to language technology and limited definition, within the cycle of lectures, workshops and practical classes.
