A New Broad NLP Training from Speech to KnowledgeNLP Training from Speech to Knowledge
Maxime Amblard | Miguel Couceiro
Proceedings of the Fifth Workshop on Teaching NLP

In 2018, the Master Sc. in NLP opened at IDMC-Institut des Sciences du Digital, du Management et de la Cognition, Universit de Lorraine-Nancy, France. Far from being a creation ex-nihilo, it is the product of a history and many reflections on the field and its teaching. This article proposes epistemological and critical elements on the opening and maintainance of this so far new master’s program in NLP.

Proceedings of the 12th Language Resources and Evaluation Conference

This paper presents a French version of the FraCaS test suite. This test suite, originally written in English, contains problems illustrating semantic inference in natural language. We describe linguistic choices we had to make when translating the FraCaS test suite in French, and discuss some of the issues that were raised by the translation. We also report an experiment we ran in order to test both the translation and the logical semantics underlying the problems of the test suite. This provides a way of checking formal semanticists’ hypotheses against actual semantic capacity of speakers (in the present case, French speakers), and allow us to compare the results we obtained with the ones of similar experiments that have been conducted for other languages.

A compositional view of questions
Maria Boritchev | Maxime Amblard
Proceedings of the 2019 Workshop on Widening NLP

We present a research on compositional treatment of questions in neo-davidsonian event semantics style. Our work is based on (Champollion, 2011) where only declarative sentences were considered. Our research is based on complex formal examples, paving the way towards further research in this domain and further testing on real-life corpora.
