Welcome to the NLP::FIN::LAB

The Natural Language Processing in Finance Lab (NLP::FIN::LAB) at the University of Colorado at Boulder - Leeds School of Business is a center that conducts original research, develops novel tools, and provides new datasets to promote our understanding of topics at the intersection of natural language processing, machine learning, optical character recognition (OCR), big data, and financial economics.

Efforts to this point have included expanding our understanding of economic history by developing tools for data extraction for archival documents and sharing these resulting databases as well as original research exploring the use of textual analysis in understanding financial markets.
