Visitor: Andrea Horbach, Automatic scoring

Andrea Horbach is visiting San Sebastian within the enetCollect network on crowdsourcing for language learning, as part of an ongoing collaborating with Itziar Aldabe, Oier Lopez de Lacalle and Montse Maritxalar about evaluating manually as well as automatically generated reading comprehension questions.

Andrea Horbach is a researcher at the Language Technology Lab headed by Prof. Torsten […]

Talk: Neural Networks and Linguistics. Talking Past Each Other? (M. Hulden, 2018-11-08)

Speaker: Mans Hulden, University of Colorado.
When: Thursday, 8 November
12:00 – 1:00pm
