The Finnish Center of Artificial Intelligence (FCAI) established a special interest group (SIG) in language, speech and cognition. Language technology and our group is one of the driving forces behind this SIG. The SIG will be introduced at the AI Day on November 26 in Ottaniemi.
FCAI hosted Research Insight Event at Aalto university. The purpose of the day was to bring together FCAI’s academics and partners to discuss shared problems and to workshop future research ideas for the center.
Found in translation (FoTran) was presented by Jörg Tiedemann.
“Natural Language Processing is not only an important component of intelligent systems that interact with users but also develops into a core discipline of AI that aims at learning world knowledge from human communication. The goal of our research is to use translations to pick up essential semantics of natural language. Combining multilingual signals with multimodal grounding we aim at improved models for natural language understanding.”
