Automatic Language Modelling and Analysis & Computational Humanities

The ALMAnaCH team (Automatic Language Modelling and Analysis & Computational Humanities) focuses on Natural Language Processing (NLP), a key area within Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Digital Humanities (DH), at the crossroads between theoretical computer science, machine learning, and linguistics. The team especially concentrates on the syntactic and semantic parsing of natural languages, including noisy web-based data, using symbolic, statistical, neural and hybrid techniques. One of the most recent challenges is the integration of contextual information, both linguistic and non-linguistic, for instance within chatbot systems. The team is also involved in Digital and Computational Humanities, especially the study and modelling of linguistic variation, i.e. for studying ancient documents, modelling the evolution of languages, study the languages of the web or participate in the development of text simplification tools for improving their accesibility to everyone.
