CSE NACLO student qualifies for International Linguistics Olympiad in India

The Human Intelligence and language Technologies (HiLT) Lab hosted the invitational round of NACLO, North American Computational Linguistics Olympiad on March 10, 2016. Six high school students who participated in the open round of NACLO at the UNT Department of Computer Science and Engineering on January 28, 2016 scored in the top 10% of the U.S. and were invited to this second round. One of those six students, Wyatt Reeves, a senior from R.L. Paschal High School in Fort Worth, has qualified as a U.S.A team member for the International Linguistics Olympiad to be held July 25-29, 2016 in Mysore, India. This is the first time a student from the UNT NACLO location has qualified for this international event.

Wyatt has been auditing the Linguistics class at Paschal and each year the school’s Linguistics Club enters a competitive team in the NACLO competition, hosted by the HiLT Lab in the UNT Department of Computer Science and Engineering. As part of the international team, Wyatt will be training online and via Skype with his new team members. Congratulations to Wyatt on his achievement and good luck to him at the International Linguistics Olympiad!
