Title: EMBEDDIA: introduction, challenges and way forward
This is an introductory talk, divided into two parts. The first part will give an overview of the EMBEDDIA project. The EMBEDDIA project focuses on the use of cross-lingual techniques to transfer language technology resources to less-resourced languages and the application of these to real-world problems in the news media industry. The second part of the talk will focus on some of the challenges of working with the real-world dataset. I would give an overview of the annotation scheme for the user news comments and the research direction we would like to pursue.
