Presentación

The Human Language and Accessibility Technologies Group (HULAT) is composed by a multidisciplinary team of PhDs and professionals in the field of information technologies. This group is part of Computer Science and Engineering Department of Universidad Carlos III de Madrid. We participate in R & D projects related to human language technologies, information retrieval and extraction in several application domains, question answering systems, usability and accessibility of user interfaces. We work in close collaboration with a great number of companies

The group was part of MAVIR consortium, a research network co- funded by the Regional Government of Madrid and the European Social Fund.

"Deep-Sync: A novel deep learning-based tool for semantic-aware subtitling synchronisation" paper published in "Neural Computing and Applications" journal

In this paper, we present Deep-Sync, a tool for the alignment of subtitles with the audio-visual content. The architecture integrates a deep language representation model and a real-time voice recognition software to build a semantic-aware alignment tool that successfully aligns most of the subtitles even when there is no direct correspondence between the re-speaker and the audio content. Deep-Sync was compared with other subtitles alignment tool, showing that our proposal is able to improve the synchronisation in all tested cases.

Seminario de investigación: "Automatic Text Simplification and Summarization" (18-22 enero 2021)

Horacio Saggion, profesor de la Universidad Pompeu Fabra, será el ponente del seminario "Automatic Text Simplification and Summarization" que se impartirá on line del 18 al 22 de enero de 2021 en el marco del Master de Ciencia y Tecnología de la Universidad Carlos III de Madrid. Se abordarán las tareas de simplificación de textos y generación automática de resúmenes como dos tareas de procesamiento del lenguaje natural, exponiendo métodos, recursos, arquitecturas y evaluación de sistemas.
