The team is currently involved in the following projects:
Funded by the French ANR, the WebNLG projects aims to develop novel technologies for generating text from knowledge bases and linked data. The WebNLG partners are Synalp, LORIA/CNRS, Nancy (France), SRI, Stanford (USA) and KRDB Bolzano.
The ModelWriter project is an ITEA funded project which aims to develop an integrated authoring environment combining Semantic Word Processing (= the "Writer" part) with Knowledge Capture Tool (= the "Model" part) solutions. In this project, we work on semantic analysis (from text to model) and natural language generation (from model to text).
The ISTEX project exploits the largest collection of plain-text scientific collections bought so far in France to diffuse it to the French academic partners. We are processing it in particular with regard to diachronic topic tracking.
Our role in this project is to process large corpora in French with syntactic and semantic tools. These corpora will be maintained in a stable state and diffused with a guarantee of at least 10 years.
Our role in this project is to improve the performances of named entity recognition through the use of unsupervised structural learning.
We're participating in this project in collaboration with the Parole team to build and process large French textual and speech resources that shall be made freely available. Our role is to process these resources with different NLP components.
The ITEA2 Empathic Products project is meant to develop applications that adapt to the intentional and emotional state of the user. Our role is to provide sentiment analysis and emotion detection services.
