Language technology through citizen science

Péter Koczka


The workshop titled Language technology through citizen science was organized within the 12th Congress for Finno-Ugric Studies held in Oulu in 2016 (for more details see the conference report on the Congress in the present volume). Following the First International Workshop on Computational Linguistics for Uralic Languages held in January 2015 in Tromsø, the section had mostly familiar faces. Its aim was to bring together researchers working on computational approaches to working with the Finno-Ugric languages. All of them exhibit rich morphological structure, which makes processing them challenging for state-of-the-art computational linguistic approaches, many are endangered and the majority also suffer from a lack of resources. That is why the varying subjects and project presentations never failed to mention the importance of open sourcing tools and making other resources publicly available.
