The paper Did the Cat Drink the Coffee? Challenging Transformers with Generalized Event Knowledge from Paolo Pedinotti, Giulia Rambelli (LPL), Emmanuele Chersoni, Enrico Santus, Alessandro Lenci and Philippe Blache (LPL) has been awarded the Best Paper Award at the *SEM 2021 Conference. The 10th Joint Conference on Lexical and Computational Semantics will be held on August 5-6. Congratulations!
We are pleased to announce that Alain Ghio, research engineer at the LPL, has just obtained funding for the research project “Processing platform for atypical speech (PATY)”, under the coordination of Jérôme Farinas from the Institute of Research in Computer Science of Toulouse (IRIT). This project was submitted as part of a call for proposals from the Carnot Cognition Institute of which the LPL is a member. It aims to make accessible the latest research and development results around atypical speech (pathologies, regional accents, etc.) and to create a tool combining several methods of analysis and automatic processing. The platform produced could then be valued by the research community specializing in cognition and speech processing as well as in various health or industrial sectors.
