Swedish NLP webinars 2021
This is a bi-weekly webinar series for people who work with, or are interested in, NLP. The idea is to provide a platform for both academic researchers and industry practitioners to present, listen to, and discuss recent work in NLP.
Program for May 26
SuperLim: a Swedish GLUE (General Language Understanding Benchmark)
- Magnus Sahlgren at RISE; Aleksandrs Berdicevskis, Yvonne Adesam, Gerlof Bouma, Dana Dannélls at Språkbanken, Gothenburg University
This seminar presents the outcome of the SuperLim project, which provides the first General Language Understanding Benchmark (GLUE) for Swedish. The test collection covers various aspects of language understanding, including reading comprehension, inference and entailment, coreference, sentiment analysis, lexical semantics, and word sense disambiguation. The presentation provides details on the various test sets, and we also discuss future development of the benchmark.
Link to the pre-release version of SuperLim: <https://spraakbanken.gu.se/resurser/superlim>. Feel free to use it, but bear in mind that many datasets are not yet complete, the documentation is missing, some things may be changed soon. We hope to release Version 1.0 in June 2021.
