Language nerd

This week I gave a talk to the Nuance Sunnyvale Research Lab on the work on OpenWordNet-PT that I'm doing with friends in Brazil, Alexandre, Livy, Fabricio, e Claudia, amongst others.

I talked about work that we have been doing since Sept 2014, when Fabricio joined us, and that I had decided  needed to be written up for a workshop in the summer.  The official venue, the ACL-LDL workshop apparently worked well and Alexandre gave the talk in Beijing. Semantic Web and Linked Data (Linguistic or not) are much more his cup of tea than mine.

The talk was ok (any talk given is better than a talk still to  give), but the audience was very focused on a problem that I do not have solutions for, yet. Anyways, giving talks is also about getting things clearer on your mind. Not only what you want to do next and how to do it, but also, a bit surprisingly, the things you've done already and what/why the panning the way they did, actually means to you. The slides are in slideshare (Seeing is Correcting) and I really need to get my act together and list all the talks,  the papers, the drafts,  the code that I have been working on organized.
