The CLCL Research Group brings together a number of academic staff and PhD students based in the Departments of Linguistics (LATL) and Computer Science (CUI, GAIL) at the University of Geneva.

The group is concerned with interdisciplinary research combining linguistic modelling with machine learning techniques. The scope of research includes fundamental issues in the statistical nature of language, fundamental issues in machine learning for structure prediction problems, and empirical evaluations that cross these two themes.

Our current research includes
  • Semantic role parsing
  • Latent variable models
  • Multi-lingual processing
  • Syntactic dependency parsing
  • Cross-lingual annotation transfer
  • Statistical spoken dialogue systems
  • Syntactic function parsing
  • Spoken language understanding.
