Natural Language Processing

The Natural Language Processing research group at DII has been working on the development of formal models and technologies for meaning extraction from natural language information sources since 1991. The group research activities focus on the following application areas: Information Extraction, Text Classification, Definition of Lexical Ontologies, Content Based Social Network Analysis, Statistical Machine Translation, Semantic Web, Digital Humanities and Cultural Heritage. Relevant results produced by the group in the past years are GraViTo, a software application for visual and interactive analysis of social networks, CATE, a platform for the development of automatic translation systems in the field of controlled languages and the Semantic Web annotation tool Pundit. Recent research is focused on the application of machine learning approaches based on lexical features to malware detection, social based recommendation systems and temporal information extraction.
