Natural Language Processing Group
“We combine foundational research with industrial applications to build new and innovative products and services, while at the same time exploring the necessary ethical and social boundaries.”
- Text analytics
- Dialogue systems
- Speech processing
The NLP research team develops technologies for the analysis, understanding and generation of speech and text. We combine methods from linguistics, natural language processing (NLP) and artificial intelligence to enable natural language communication between humans and machines. In our research, we work on topics such as text classification (e.g. sentiment analysis), chatbots/dialogue systems, text summarization, speech-to-text, speaker diarization and natural language generation. The group particularly focuses on Swiss German speech and text processing.
