Learn at LTI

Our unique programs offer expertise that prepares you for a wide range of careers while staying true to the rigorous curriculum that defines computer science at CMU.

Explore Our Work

At the LTI, our faculty and students investigate more than 20 areas of language and information technologies that will impact everything from education to healthcare.

Collaborate With Us

Strong partnerships lead to strong results. We want to work with you to change the world.

The LTI offers five graduate degrees in computer science: the Ph.D. in Language and Information Technology, the research-based Master of Language Technologies, and our three professional master's programs – the Master of Science in Intelligent Information Systems, the Master of Science in Biotechnology Innovation and Computation, and the Master of Computational Data Science. We're looking for the best students to join us.

Online repository offers resources for researchers

We recognize that the only way to advance language technologies research is to share our results with other professionals and researchers across the globe. The LTI Catalogue contains more than 100 different resources like tools, libraries, web services and data that are available to anyone. We hope that the catalogue will grow and thrive as our research does the same.

Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) have great potential to change where and how people learn. But MOOCs have a typical completion rate in the single digits. One reason for such dismal results? Possibly the lack of social interaction experienced in online learning.Carolyn Rosé, an associate professor in the LTI, hopes to change that with her latest research on MOOCs and online learning. A...

Despite rapid improvements in machine learning technologies, real-time machine translation algorithms still make mistakes that humans would find unthinkable. A team of researchers from the Language Technologies Institute, New York University, and The University of Hong Kong recently published a paper demonstrating that, for the first time, certain algorithms can perform simultaneous speech...

Kill or be killed is the essence of the classic video game Doom, and an artificial intelligence agent developed by two Language Technologies Institute students has proven to be the game's ultimate survivor — outplaying both the game's built-in AI agents and human players.The students, Devendra Chaplot and Guillaume Lample, used deep-learning techniques to train the AI agent to negotiate the...

The Gates Hillman Complex

The LTI makes its home inside the Hillman Center for Future Generation Technologies. We're right on campus, but an easy walk from great restaurants, coffee shops, museums and libraries.
