Anonymisation Training Day for Young Researchers

On 25 May 2021, the H2020 project LT-Bridge will organise a training day focusing on anonymisation, which is especially targeted at young researchers in the area of computer linguistics, computer science and language technology. Supported by the Latvian Language Technology company Tilde, the free online event will take place from 11:00 am to 15:30 pm CEST via Zoom.

The training day will give early-stage researchers the possibility to get together to explore the possibilities of anonymisation in the context of language data, in addition to connecting and extending their networks. Besides a general overview of anonymisation, including different strategies, levels and challenges with regard to language data, the training day will also focus more specifically on:

– Anonymisation for monolingual text analysis
– Named Entity Recognition for anonymisation
– Parallel text anonymisation for machine translation
– Anonymisation of speech data
– Legal aspects of anonymisation
– Available tools and applications

About LT-Bridge

The LT-Bridge project is coordinated by the University of Malta’s AI Department and the Institute of Computational Linguistics. It aims to strengthen both the research and innovation capacities at the University of Malta and to create a European-level Centre of Excellence, which is capable of narrowing or even closing the technology gap for Maltese. The Horizon 2020 project started on 1 January 2021 and is based on a collaboration between University of Malta, the German Research Centre for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI), the ADAPT Centre of Dublin City University (DCU), and the IDIAP Research Institute (IDIAP) in Switzerland.
