EasyAI

An introductory class to Artificial Intelligence
for translators, interpreters and linguists

What is EasyAI

EasyAI is a project that aims at explaining Artificial Intelligence applied to Language, in a compact, visually oriented and minimalistic way. The aim is to empower the next generation of language professionals with knowledge of the latest developments in natural language processing and artificial intelligence.

The content is adapted to a heterogeneous and non-specialist target audience from the humanities, especially students of translation, interpretation, linguistics and cultural studies. It aims at conveying both theoretical knowledge - e.g. what is and how does machine learning work - and applied knowledge - e.g. how to avoid racial bias in language models - in self-contained didactic units, with no math and without previous computational background.

Designed for students of the humanities

Understand complex computer science concepts without the need of math of pregressed knowledge.

Organised in chapters

The project is organised in Chapters, covering the basic concepts of Artificial Intelligence applied to language processing.

User-centred

The content is presented in a compact and dynamic way with the goal of making the topic accessable to a non-specialist audience

Chapters
