Home / Research / Work Package 5

/ Introduction

Language technologies are at the core of media technologies. This work package aims to provide datasets and models for Norwegian (Bokmål/Nynorsk) that support the automated understanding as well as the automated production of media texts in this language. 

Objective: WP5 adopts theoretical approaches and methodologies primarily based on linguistic data science, including neural learning. Based on language data in the media from the user partners and data and tools at the research partners, large corpora will be annotated. The labelled examples in these corpora will be used for training and evaluating supervised models that demonstrate advanced approaches in areas such as robust deep language analysis, adaptive language generation, event identification and extraction, and analyzing opinions. The partners will cooperate to explore the use of such models for innovative purposes.
