How can AI techniques be used to help language preservation and documentation efforts? In this half-day virtual event, language researchers from the VUB AI lab will provide an introduction to how agent-based computer simulations can support field linguists and development organizations. Agent-based models can be used to simulate the factors that endanger languages, and evaluate possible measures that can be taken before implementing policies in real life.
This online event has taken place on Thursday 25 March 2021. The slides of the workshop can be downloaded here.
The research which led to this event has been funded by the Onderzoeksprogramma Artificiële Intelligentie (AI) Vlaanderen programme, by a FWO PhD Fellowship fundamental research (11A2821N) and by the FWO-NWO grant “The emergence of phonology within six generations”.
