Natural Language Processing for Tax Assessment

For over a decade, our group (led by Dr. Yongmin Li, Email: Yongmin.Li@brunel.ac.uk) have been working in an extensive area of artificial intelligence and data science. Recent projects include medical imaging, bioimaging, AI-assisted tax assessment, foveated ray tracing, semantic video analysis, dynamic object modelling and image recognition. We have received numerous research awards from international conferences, professional organisations and the university. We invite talented and hard-working candidates to join us for their PhD study.

Natural Language Processing for Tax Assessment Identifying potential capital allowances involves large volumes of construction and fixed asset cost data to be analysed to assign the correct tax treatment, requires an understanding of tax legislation, complex case law and construction terminology. This process is time-consuming and complex, and as a result, often available tax relief is overlooked. In this project, we will develop an automated solution to this problem by using advanced techniques of artificial intelligence and natural language processing. You will have the opportunity to gain experience in modern artificial intelligence techniques, in particular on expert systems, deep learning and natural language processing.
