Description

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.
