Several applications from the computational analysis of language
The TALN group participates in the Master in Intelligent Interactive Systems
The TALN group, Tractament Automàtic del Llenguatge Natural (Natural Language Processing) is part of the Department of Information and Communication Technologies, at Pompeu Fabra University, in Barcelona.
The research carried out by the group focuses on selected aspects of Natural Language Processing such as Computational Lexicology, Language-oriented Machine Learning, Multilingual Natural Language Generation, Summarization, and Speech Prosody.
Special focus is put on application-oriented NLP and synergies with other fields of Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence.
Mission : To improve the communication between humans and computers using natural language technologies
Vision: To become one of the world leading research institutions in the field of Natural Language Processing for a representative set of European languages, in both directions: analysis of written and spoken material and its generation. Offer to the community high quality tools with broad coverage for the analysis, generation and summarization of natural language.
Values: Perform rigorous and high quality research that brings added value to the society by means of technology transfer and training of researchers.
The TALN group is committed to quality. We aim to be a group that companies can rely on. Even if a scientific group is not managed as a factory, we work to ensure high quality outputs in order to be able to be at the cutting edge of research and technology development to continue growing. The group is working to be certified with the ISO 9001. The quality management system is implented in our intranet: quality-taln.upf.edu
