HLTCon — Human Language Technology Conference
16 Mar 2021 - 18 Mar 2021 • Virtual, Any Location (virtual event)
Organizer:
Basis Technology
Abstract:
Human Language Technology (HLT) cannot be “future proofed” because the target is organic, ever changing, human language. Like a weather forecast, a static model is only accurate at a point in time. What we need is the NLP equivalent of a weather app pulling in streaming live weather data. Adaptation is the future of HLT: continuously learning models that are quickly spun up with an annotation effort to “crawl”; then adapted to learn new domains to “walk”; and receive the fine-tuning and corrections in the field from non-technical subject matter experts who will see HLT run! Today, models of human language can learn and evolve in the same way as children, and adaptation systems are key to making that all work. Come to HLTCon to learn more about these innovations that will keep your analytics accurate and relevant to your mission. The event will be recorded and can be viewed for a limited time after the event, so if you are unable to make it live, please register to receive the link to the recording.

ISLE 6
02 Jun 2021 - 05 Jun 2021 • Joensuu, Any Location (virtual event)
Organizer:
ISLE 6 will be hosted by the University of Eastern Finland School of Humanities.
Abstract:
Digitalization is undoubtedly one of the great revolutions in human history. Technologization and digitalization make it possible that massive amounts of linguistic data, past and present, are available through various channels. These data can be combined, annotated, mined and visualized using high-powered computing. For several decades, English linguistics has been at the forefront of this revolution in the humanities, as evinced for instance in the development and use of digital corpora and in the quantitative turn in the field. While we recognize these past achievements, ISLE 6 seeks to assess the impact of digitalization in English linguistics and in the study of its varieties. We hope to be a venue for state-of-the-art presentations that highlight how digitalization can (or cannot) benefit the study of English linguistics and how it could help us understand its past and present and possibly predict its future paths.
