Machine Learning Group ‎‏‏‎ ‎ ‎‎–‎ ‏‏‎ ‎ ‎ Prof. Dr. Alan Akbik

Welcome to the Machine Learning Group of the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin!

Our group focuses on research in machine learning (ML) and natural language processing (NLP). We aim to give machines the ability to understand and use human language. To achieve this, our group develops the Flair framework for automated text analysis. It is already used in hundreds of research projects and industrial applications and is frequently listed among the most popular deep learning frameworks for NLP.

On these pages you can find more information about our group:
