The iLanguage Lab seeks to put Natural Language Processing and FieldLinguistics into the pockets of consumers by building productivity tools and plugins which adapt to the user’s iLanguage. We develop Machine Learning, Image Processing and Natural Language Processing pipelines for information extraction and information visualisation using a data-centered and context-rich approach. Many of our tools and libraries are OpenSource and freely available on GitHub.
We develop and test our tools & plugins in collaboration with researchers at UdeM, UQAM, McGill and Concordia in the form of Android experimentation tools and/or data collection apps with the goal of transmitting technical skills to research labs to automate their data collection and data entry processes. We also provide training on existing OpenSource tools for Speech Recognition, Speech-Text Alignment, Acoustic Analysis, Eye Gaze Analysis, Image Processing, Scraping, Information Extraction, Corpus Analysis and Machine Learning. For undergrads in Speech Language Pathology, Linguistics, Psycholinguistics, Computer Science and Software Engineering we offer paid and unpaid internships in OpenData, Data Analysis, Data Collection and Data Automation.
For the Fall 2014 semester our open source office hours are on Mondays, usually between 10 and 8pm, contact Hisako if you want to come by.
