Cross-Linguistic Semantics: Methodological Advances

As I mentioned in my previous post, this summer, I had the pleasure of attending the 33rd European Summer School in Logic, Language, and Information, a fascinating series of multidisciplinary courses focusing on the intersection of computational linguistics, semantics, and logic. Today, I’d like to discuss another class that I attended at the school thatContinue reading “Cross-Linguistic Semantics: Methodological Advances”

Language Resources: Optimal Neural Network Training

This summer, I had the pleasure of attending the 33rd European Summer School in Logic, Language, and Information, a fascinating series of multidisciplinary courses focusing on the intersection of computational linguistics, semantics, and logic. Today I’d like to discuss one of the classes I participated in called Creating and Maintaining High-quality Language Resources, which didContinue reading “Language Resources: Optimal Neural Network Training”
