HUN-CLARIN devised the concept of a Roadshow series that is based on the idea of proactively (and literally) bringing language technology to where humanities research is actually done, namely, to Hungarian universities.
Tour de CLARIN: Hungary
Noémi Vadász is a PhD student and junior research fellow who works at the Research Institute for Linguistics. As a computational linguist with a formal background in syntax and semantics, she collaborates with HUN-CLARIN in the e-magyar project.
The e-magyar toolchain was developed in 2016 as a major collaborative effort across the Hungarian community. The rationale for it was based on a clear vision of an open, modular, extendable and easy-to-use pipeline for Hungarian, which was suitable for non-specialists and developers alike.
The multimodal HuComTech corpus aims to improve human-machine communication applications (like chatbots) by empowering them with a comprehensive set of knowledge about human-human communicative behaviour.
The national CLARIN consortium for Hungary, HunCLARIN, joined CLARIN in 2016. The Research Institute for Linguistics was one of the founding partners of CLARIN and took an active role in the preparatory phase of the history of CLARIN.
