On the 22nd and 23rd of October 2020, as part of the 18th edition of the popular science event “Festival della Scienza di Genova”, AILC will present a workshop entitled “Il linguaggio di Siri (The language of Siri)”.

Our activities are aimed at introducing high-school students to (computational) linguistics. Concrete examples of computational modelling of language tasks as well as interactive games will be employed to illustrate the opportunities and the limits of language analysis and representation.

The laboratory was designed and built by Ludovica Pannitto, Lucia Busso,  Claudia Roberta Combei, Mirko Lai, Lucio Messina, and Malvina Nissim.

Further details on the topics presented at the festival are available in this presentation presentation (in Italian).
