WHAT IS

MALAYSIAN COMPUTATIONAL LINGUISTICS OLYMPIAD?

Malaysian Computational Linguistics Olympiad (MyCLO) is an annual national contest in the subject of computational linguistics. MyCLO started its first competition in the year of 2018. Computational Linguistic is a relatively new field in Malaysia, thus, the effort to introduce Malaysian Computational Linguistics Olympiad to the mass.

International Olympiad of Linguistics (IOL) is an annual international championship for linguistics for pre-university students. The IOL has its roots in linguistic competitions that was held in Soviet Union since the 1960s. The IOL was started in 2003, with the first edition being held in Bulgaria. As of 2018, there are 29 countries that are represented in the IOL. IOL is a part of the International Science Olympiads. IOL 2019 will take place in Yongin, Korea.

To join the competition, participants would not require any prior knowledge of linguistics and neither do they need the ability to speak multiple languages. With just the ability to think logically as well as having patience, participants are more than equipped to join the competition. The problems of MyCLO are in the form of linguistic puzzles which tests students’ ability to apply deductive and logical reasoning, and does not depend on the ability or knowledge in any language

As of 2018, 43 countries have been actively involved in International Olympiad of Linguistics (IOL). MyCLO is an open contest, and is part of the selection process for the Malaysian team to the International Linguistics Olympiad. In 2018, MyCLO sent the first national teams and making Malaysia apart of the long list of countries that participates in IOL. Our first participation in IOL can be proud of when Yeoh Zi Song manage to receive a silver medal.
