  • Brief description of your expertise / expertise you are looking for:

    We are a research group from the University of Jaén (Spain) called SINAI (Intelligent Systems for Information Access). SINAI is a team composed by 10 researchers and two PhD students. SINAI is specialized in the study of Human Language Technologies (HLT) or Natural Language Processing (NLP). Since 2000, the intensive work of the SINAI team has allowed the opening of different lines of research. Some of the most important are: • Multilingual and Multimodal Information Retrieval • Data and text mining • Information extraction • Opinion mining and Sentiment Analysis • Linked Open Data • Advanced Machine Learning (Deep Learning, Transfer learning…) • Model Language Generation The acquired knowledge by SINAI is shown in all the research papers published (more than 300), the research resources developed, the research projects carried out, and the different industrial collaborations. Skills and competences: SINAI has participated in several national and international projects, most of them related to NLP. In this way, we have a great expertise in project management and dissemination activities. Our main concerns are related to basic research on any area of NLP but also we are focusing on transfer technology to industrial environment. Our group has a huge background programming with usual framework like NLTK or GATE and integrating cutting-edge technologies such as AJAX, RUBY, R, Python… In addition, we can manage huge data and integrate it in our systems or extract knowledge from different sources of information in order to improve the baseline systems. We have dealt with several languages (English, Arab, Spanish, German…) and we have developed cross-lingual systems using these languages. Also, we are focused on applying our technologies in several domains (tourism, health and medical, geographical, financial, security…) generating resources that are currently used in the NLP community (lexicons, corpora…). Commitment offered: We can offer an excellent expertise in technology development related to NLP, including the combination of different techniques such as machine learning, semantic orientation, integration of external knowledge, generation of linguistic resources for different languages (mainly English and Spanish). Our group is also mainly interested in basic and fundamental research in all areas of NLP In addition, we have a great experience in dissemination tasks, not only by the publication of papers in the main conferences and journal of our area, but also organizing other activities like congress and workshops (SEPLN, TASS, TIMM Workshops…)

  • Brief description of your project / the project you would like to join:

    We are looking for projects in which we can apply our NLP techniques to solve real problems related to social issues such as the detection of inappropriate behaviour in social media such as the detection of offensive language, hate speech, fake news, identity fraud or early detection of certain problems of mental health such as anorexia, depression, or even suicide
