Workshop: Applied Swedish NLP (SLTC 2020)
The projects Language Models for Swedish Authorities, Swedish Medical Language Data Lab, and Swedish Language Data Lab, are aiming for developing and giving access to language models and data for Swedish applications, including investigating the various means of distributing these in legally, ethically, and technically permitting ways.
The aim of the workshop is to identify additional needs, use cases, and related challenges that can either be incorporated into the ongoing projects, form the basis of new collaborations and projects, or contribute to new research ideas.
The detailed programme for the workshop sessions will be released closer to the workshop date. To start off the afternoon, we will open with high-level presentations of the work that has been done so far in the projects, focusing on targeted and identified needs and use cases.
Information on how to register for the workshop to come after the summer. Note that participation in the workshop will not require registration for the SLTC 2020 conference (but is of course encouraged).
