NLP Shared Tasks activities

Shared tasks are a good means to collaborate with other researchers, they let students work on a defined task in a competitive way, and generally assess the methodological competences in solving practical problems. From 2017 to 2022, we had several successful shared task participations and helped to co-organized shared tasks as well:

Projects and Work

I generally enjoy interdisciplinary work and sometimes consult scholars who apply text analytics methods to their problems. One example is the concept extraction for the material science journal article "A framework for evaluating the accessibility of raw materials from end-of-life products and the Earth’s crust" (work with Sandra R. Mueller). Another example  is from the social sciences  on the topic of "Text Zoning for Job Advertisement with Bidirectional LSTMs" in 2017 (work with Ann-Sophie Gnehm).
