Project ANR "OTIM" (Tools for Multimodal Information Processing)
Project ANR "Blanc", 2008-2011
Partners : LPL, LIMSI, LSIS, LIA
I am the Principal Investigator of the project which aims at developing resources and tools for creating and annotating multimodal corpora
Project PEPS "IHM multimodale en réalité virtuelle"
Project PEPS (CNRS), 2008-2009
Partners : LPL, I3S, ISM, LIA, Sté Jensys
I am the coordinator of this project. It aims at studying multimodal communication in virtual reality environments, focusing more specifically on collaborative tasks.
- Filtering parsing
- Ambiguity resolution
- Reusable systems
Several parsers have been developed in these perspectives. They have been
evaluated during the French evaluation campaign
Syntax: Property Grammars
propose a new syntactic approach, called Property Grammars, making
it possible to take into account empirical as well as formal aspects of
linguistic description. Property Grammars are fully
constraint-based. They interpret parsing as an actual constraint
Alternative communication consists
in developing communication devices making it possible for handicapped
people to write and synthesize messages. The system helps users even
suffering from cognitive troubles. It proposes a set of helping tools for
written as well as non verbal communication. A working group was created
at the LPL, gathering researcher in linguistics, psychology, medicine as
well as therapeutists and users. This project led to the creation
of the start-up AEGYS.
Multilevel corpus annotation for spoken language
This project aims at developing tools helping in the multilevel annotation of spoken language corpora.
Annotations come from different domain (phonetics, phonology, syntax,
pragmatics, etc.) and are aligned with the acoustic signal. They are
encoded in XML and a specific query language is under development in
