Let’s learn: I speak, you speak, he/she speaks but does the machine understand him/her?

We will have the pleasure to listen to the DRI member Mohktar Billami for a presentation as part of Let’s learn, this

Thursday, 14 January from 13:15 to 14:00.


Automatic translators, suggested words for smartphone input, search engines, spell checkers, chatbots, etc. You may not realize it, but you use automatic Natural Language Processing (NLP) techniques daily!
French, English, and Spanish commonly used by humans do not have the same consistency as programming languages. Their grammar has exceptions, their vocabulary evolves, they have countless interpretations. For example, the sentence “I’m sleepy” takes on a different meaning if pronounced in the morning or in the evening, from a sofa, a car seat or a cinema.
While humans are quite good at dealing with this ambiguity, machines are not at all. This is the very purpose of NLP: making the complexity of information contained in language accessible to the machine, both for comprehension and expression.
This presentation will give you an overview of how NLP is used and its various applications in industry.

To attend the event, check your emails and sign-up in the Let’s learn agenda of January or join directly the Teams event.
You are not available this thursday? The session will be recorded and the replay accessible on the MyBL training platform!
