Final call for papers: Conference on Logic and Machine Learning in Natural Language (LaML)

Conference on Logic and Machine Learning in Natural Language (LaML)

Conference dates: June 12-14, 2017

Venue: Wallenberg Conference Centre, University of Gothenburg

Organised by CLASP, University of Gothenburg

The past two decades have seen impressive progress in a variety of areas of AI, particularly NLP, through the application of machine learning methods to a wide range of tasks. With the intensive use of deep learning methods in recent years this work has produced significant improvements in the coverage and accuracy of NLP systems in such domains as speech recognition, topic identification, semantic interpretation, and image description generation.

While deep learning is opening up exciting new approaches to longstanding, difficult problems in computational linguistics, it also raises important foundational questions. Specifically, we do not have a clear formal understanding of why multi-level recursive deep neural networks achieve the success in learning and classification that they are delivering. It is also not obvious whether they should displace more traditional, logically driven methods, or be combined with them. Finally, we need to explore the extent, if any, to which both logical models and machine learning methods offer insights into the cognitive foundations of natural language.

The Conference on Logic and Machine Learning in Natural Language will address these questions and related issues. It will feature invited talks by leading researchers in both fields, and high level contributed papers selected through open competition and rigorous review. Our aim is to initiated a genuine dialogue between these two approaches, where they have traditionally remained separate and in competition.

The conference proceedings will be published online, with an ISSN, on the CLASP website. Authors will retain the copyright of their papers and be free to publish them elsewhere, with acknowledgement.

Registration is free and participation is open. We warmly invite everyone to attend.

Invited Speakers:

Marco Baroni, Trento
Alexander Clark, King’s College London
Devdatt Dubhashi, Chalmers
Katrin Erk, University of Texas, Austin
Joakim Nivre, Uppsala
Aarne Ranta, Gothenburg
Mehrnoosh Sadrzadeh, Queen Mary University of London

An Overview of Python Deep Learning Frameworks

By Madison May, indico.

I recently stumbled across an old Data Science Stack Exchange answer of mine on the topic of the “Best Python library for neural networks”, and it struck me how much the Python deep learning ecosystem has evolved over the course of the past 2.5 years. The library I recommended in July 2014, pylearn2, is no longer actively developed or maintained, but a whole host of deep learning libraries have sprung up to take its place. Each has its own strengths and weaknesses.

GATE summer school

The 10th GATE summer school will be held from 26-30 June 2017 at the
University of Sheffield, UK.
Registration is now open, and the early registration deadline is 1 May 2017.

More information and registration details at

The focus this year will again be on mining social media and news
content with GATE. Many of the hands on exercises will be focused on
analysing tweets, blogs, news, and other social media content.

This event will follow a similar format to that of the 2016 course,
with one track Monday to Thursday, and two parallel tracks on Friday,
all delivered by the GATE development team. The course is suitable for
both programmers with Java expertise and for non-programmers.

For enquiries, please contact gate-fig[å]
