Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

Meeting Description: Since the 1990s the practice of natural language processing (NLP) has gradually shifted from logic-based symbol manipulation systems first to purely statistical, and more recently to hybrid systems that combine structural and statistical methods. The mathematical theory of hybrid NLP is still not fully mature, and the special session intends to bring together mathematicians, computer scientists, theoretical and computational linguists and AI researchers with an interest in its foundations.
