With the recently certified Knowledge Centre on speech data (CLARIN-SPEECH), we now have a total of four K-Centres, all established in 2015, and exemplifying the range of K-Centres that is possible.
Redundant setup for Discovery Service. The CLARIN Discovery Service is now running on two independent servers, with a failover setup. In practice this means that maintenance (restarting the server, updates, etc.) can be done while the service in question remains available. A similar setup is planned for the CLARIN Identity Provider.
An article by Petra Kralj Novak et al describes an analysis of 70,000 tweets in 13 languages, in which they assigned a sentiment score and neutrality level to 751 emoji, the popular characters which feature in much on-line communication.
Congratulations to LINDAT/CLARIN (Czech Republic) who has been successfully re-assessed as CLARIN B-Centre!
There will be 4 workshops over the next two years as part of the CLARIN-PLUS project, which will focus on using CLARIN in research. To ensure that we make a success of these events, we need to draw on the collective knowledge of the CLARIN network to identify successful applications of language and speech technology in these domains.
November and December were busy months for CLARIN.SI, especially in the area of user engagement. In cooperation with the Slovenian research project JANES (Resources, Tools and Methods for the Research of Nonstandard Internet Slovenian), the Slovenian Language Technologies Society, and the Swiss project ReLDI (Regional Linguistic Data Initiative) we organised the Conference Slovenian on the Web and in New Media on 25–27 November 2015 in Ljubljana.
As of today, the 71 Italian Identity Providers have been added to the Service Provider Federation. This means that all users with an account at one of these academic organisations can use federated login to access the password-protected CLARIN services, e.g. the recently added Corpuscle corpus analysis system.
On 19 and 20 November the CLARIN ERIC General Assembly had its annual meeting in Copenhagen. The meeting counted 31 participants from 17 countries (including the CLARIN ERIC Board of Directors), several more than last year.
