NLP Shared Tasks activities

Shared tasks are a good means to collaborate with other researchers, let students work on a defined task in a competitive way, and generally assess your methodological competence in solving practical problems. In 2017 and 2018, we had several successful shared task participations:


Projects and Work

Sinergia project impresso, Citizen Linguistics Project on Swiss German Dialects and Swiss French,,; Exploitation of linguistically annotated multilingual multiparallel corpora SPARCLING; Multilingual Sentiment Analysis KTI project together with Eurospider ; Biomedical Text Mining: MANTRA; SASEBio ; Political Text Mining: COSA ; German Sentiment Analysis IGGSA; Sentence Extension Tests (SET): SET ; Web-based Virtual Laboratory for Computational Linguistics CLab
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).
