    Natural Language Processing

    Natural Language Processing methods is one of the core research fields in the Data Science Chair, especially in combination with formal knowledge collected in Knowledge Graphs.

    In projects like Kallimachos or CLiGS we collaborate with literary scholars and work on literary and NLP research questions. In MOTIV, we work with psychologists to analyse the interaction between users and smart devices. In DZ.PTM, we cooperate with researchers in medice to analyse patient records. We also have a long-standing cooperation with vAudience to collect and analyse messages from twitch.tv.

    Core Research Topics include:

    • Sentiment Analysis
    • Detection of scenes (i.e., coherent segments in literary texts)
    • Combination of Knowledge Graphs with NLP methods
