Debora Nozza awarded with an ERC Starting Grant

We are glad to announce that Debora Nozza has been awarded an ERC Starting Grant for her project PERSONAE: congratulations!

PERSONAE will investigate subjective tasks from the individual’s point of view, designing language technologies that can be adapted by individuals at will over time. It will focus on making individual users active actors in the creation of these technologies rather than mere recipients. This will enable a much more tailored, effective approach to NLP model design, resulting in better models that are also accessible and valuable to everyone.

Great success of LCL 2023

From 29 to 31 May the 2023 edition of the Lectures on Computational Linguistics was held at the University of Pisa, organized by Alessandro Lenci (Department of Philology, Literature and Linguistics, University of Pisa) and Felice Dell’Orletta (ILC-CNR). The 2023 edition recorded a record number of participants, with 200 master’s, doctoral and post-doc students enrolled, coming from Italy and abroad. The Lectures were held in coordination with the parallel event Ital-IA, the conference on artificial intelligence organized by the National Interuniversity Consortium for Computer Science (CINI).

The 2023 Lectures were made up of four tutorials by international teachers (Afra Alishahi, Albert Gatt, Barbara Plack, Ellie Pavlick), two workshops (Alessandro Bondielli, Alessio Miaschi, Lucia Passaro, Gabriele Sarti) and two evening seminars which illustrated the main challenges of the field, held by Dino Pedreschi and Simonetta Montemagni.

The Lectures focused on the most recent learning and knowledge representation models in mono- and multi-modal contexts, with particular reference to the latest generation of neural language models. Aspects related to the processes of generation and transfer of knowledge, their interpretation and explainability were addressed. The topics have been declined both in a theoretical perspective of linguistic and IT study and in application scenarios oriented to Digital Humanities.
