Advances in Machine Learning and Natural Language Processing

EAI International Workshop on Advances in Machine Learning and Natural Language Processing

To be held at EAI PFSM 2021 conference, Portugal / online, on 24-26 November, 2021


In this smart planet Machine Learning and Natural Language Processing are the buzzwords whirling around all walks of life. Nowadays, machine learning and Natural Language Processing techniques and applications have become one of the sprightliest attention of current technology developments. In fact, machine learning and Natural language processing techniques have proved to have superhuman abilities in numerous fields such as self-driving cars, fraud detection, medical image classification, web-searches, image and speech recognition, email/spam filtering, pattern recognition, biometric systems, credit scores, ontologies, corpora, lexical databases, linguistic, sociolinguistic, psycholinguistic, historical and literary issues of the language and culture are powered by machine learning and Natural Language processing algorithms and are huge parts of our daily life. Systems like web search engines and Google Translate rely more and more on huge repositories of structured language data and levels of linguistic information automatically provided through Machine Learning and NLP tools.


This special session aims to bring together academic researchers, scholars, engineers, industrialists, and other professionals working towards scientific problems to address the aforementioned domains to exchange ideas on recent innovations trends in the research and applications of machine learning models and natural language processing technologies. It is expected that the exchanged ideas on recent research and future directions open the way for collaborative investigations towards discoveries and extensive enhancement of the cutting-edge technologies.
