NLP Knowledge Hub
Natural Language Processing (NLP) is one of AI Sweden’s strategic areas. Starting with the Swedish Language Data Lab project, AI Sweden takes part in creating a national knowledge hub within NLP, that will accelerate innovation, research, and applications in this area.
What is NLP?
NLP algorithms, or language models, learn from language data, enabling machine understanding and machine representation of natural (human) language. Using NLP, applications and tools can be used to identify patterns and provide insights hidden in large amounts of language data, too vast for humans to process. Based on patterns and insights, unstructured data can be turned into actionable information, allowing us to make data-driven and well-informed decisions.
In order for Sweden to benefit from the rapid development in the NLP area, language models need to be trained on datasets for Swedish and minority languages spoken in Sweden.
