Language Complexity and Readability

SemEval-2014 workshop will be held in conjunction with the COLING 2014 conference.

A session will be devoted to Task 1"Evaluation of compositional distributional semantic models on full sentences through semantic relatedness and textual entailment" organized by DH-FBK (Stefano Menini), HLT-FBK (Luisa Bentivogli) and UNITN (Marco Marelli, Marco Baroni, Raffaella Bernardi, and Roberto Zamparelli).

The DH unit has organized a reading group on different topics related to Natural Language Processing and Digital Humanities. The meetings are open to anyone, especially to students.

In the first meeting we will deal with multiword expressions, and we will discuss the paper 'Collocations and statistical analysis of n-grams' by Gunn Inger and Gisle Andersen.

Three papers accepted at LREC 2014: "CROMER: A Tool for Cross-Document Event and Entity Coreference", "Crowdsourcing for the identification of event nominals: an experiment", "A SICK cure for the evaluation of compositional distributional semantic models".

Slides of our ""Digital Humanities: Current state and Future challenges" workshop in memory of Emanuele Pianta are now available: https://dh.fbk.eu/events/dh-workshop-memory-emanuele-pianta

The poster presented at the Herrenhausen Conference "(Digital) Humanities Revisited – Challenges and Opportunities in the Digital Age" in Hanover is available online

During the final review of the Terence European Project, in which the DH group was involved for the language analysis and simplification task, the project outcome has been rated as "excellent". Congratulations to all the Consortium partners! 

Stefano Menini is among the organizers of SemEval 2014 task on "Evaluation of compositional distributional semantic models on full sentences through semantic relatedness and textual entailment".

As part of the activities of Digital Humanities group in FBK, we are organizing a one-day workshop on "Digital Humanities: Current state and Future challenges". The event will include invited talks from prominent scholars and experts from the Digital Humanities area, especially those active at the intersection between humanities and human language technologies. We would like to know more about past successful experiences and ongoing projects all over Europe.  

Phd student Stefano Menini has received a student's grant from Volkswagenstiftung to attend the Herrenhausen Conference "(Digital) Humanities Revisited – Challenges and Opportunities in the Digital Age".
