Competitivity Clusters

  • LabEx EFL (2010-2019, PI Christian Puech [HTL, Paris 3], Sorbonne Paris Cité). Topic: empirical foundations of linguistics, including computational linguistics and natural language processing. ALPAGE was one of the partner teams of this LabEx, which gathers a dozen of teams within and around Paris whose research interests include one aspects of linguistics or more. BS serves as deputy head (and former head) of one of the scientific strands of the LabEx, namely strand 6 dedicated to language resources. BS and DS are in charge of a number of scientific “operations” within strands 6, 5 (“computational semantic analysis”) and 2 (“experimental grammar”). BS, EVdLC and DS are now individual members of the LabEx EFL since 1st January 2017, and BS still serves as the deputy head of strand 6. Main collaborations are on language resource development (strands 5 and 6), syntactic and semantic parsing (strand 5, especially with LIPN [CNRS and U.Paris 13]) and computational morphology (strands 2 and 6, especially with CRLAO [CNRS and Inalco]).

Other National Initiatives

  • LECTAUREP project (2017-2018): An explorative study has been launched in collaboration with the National Archives in France, in the context of the framework agreement between Inria and the Ministry of Culture, to explore the possibility of extracting various components from digitized 19th Century notary registers.

  • Nénufar (DGLFLF - Délégation générale à la langue française et aux langues de France): The projects is intended to digitize and exploit the early editions (beginning of the 20th Century) of the Petit Larousse dictionary. ALMAnaCH is involve to contribute to the automatic extraction of the dictionary content by means of GROBID-Dictionaries and define a TEI compliant interchange format for all results.

  • PIA Opaline: The objective of the project is to provide a better access to published French literature and reference material for visually impaired persons. Financed by the Programme d'Investissement d'Avenir, it will integrate technologies related to document analysis and re-publishing, textual content enrichment and dedicated presentational interfaces. Inria participate to deploy the GROBID tool suite for the automatic structuring of content from books available as plain PDF files.
