Short bio

I received my “Laurea” Degree in Philosophy of Language in 1999 at the University of Bologna. Since then, I have been working as a researcher at Fondazione Bruno Kessler (formerly ITC-irst). From October 2008 to December 2013 I was part-time assigned to the Centre for the Evaluation of Language and Communication Technologies (CELCT), first as a research manager with the role of coordinating the activities of the Centre (2008-2012), then as Director of the Centre (2012-2013).

I have been involved in the EU-funded projects MMT (2015-2017), CRACKER (2015-2017), Excitement (2012-2014), MateCat (2014), MosesCore (2014), EU-Bridge (2012-2014), FlareNet (2008-2011), MEANING (2002-2005) and in projects funded by the Autonomous Province of Trento, including LiveMemories (2008-2011), OntoText (2004-2007), WebFaq (2001-2004).

My research interests encompass evaluation of human language technologies, translation technologies for translators, crowdsourcing for NLP, corpus creation and annotation, computational lexicography in a multilingual environment. I co-authored more than 60 scientific publications and have served as reviewer for conferences and workshops. I have been involved in the organization of different tasks in several evaluation campaigns (e.g. RTE, IWSLT, SemEval, EVALITA) and other international events (MT Marathon 2014, School of Advanced Technologies for Translators 2016 and 2017).

    Accesso all´informazione basato su conoscenza: interfaccia del portale ONTOTEXT (versione 31/12/2006),
    Il progetto Ontotext nasce per studiare e sviluppare tecniche innovative di estrazione della conoscenza al fine di produrre nuova e coerente informazione destinata al Web Semantico. La creazione del portale ONTOTEXT rappresenta lo scenario applicativo del progetto Ontotext, il cui obiettivo finale consiste nel costruire un portale in grado di presentare l’informazione nel modo più possibile flessibile ed aderente alle richieste dell’utente. La principale e innovativa caratteristica del portale ONTOTEXT consiste nel permettere un accesso all’informazione non più basato esclusivamente sui testi, come avviene attualmente nei maggiori portali a disposizione sul Web, bensì basato e guidato dalla conoscenza estratta dai testi stessi.In questo documento sono presentate le funzionalità del portale dimostrativo di ONTOTEXT che sarà rilasciato al 31/12/2006. Verrà descritta nel dettaglio l’interfaccia utente del portale e saranno analizzati una serie di problemi relativi a come interpretare le domande dell’utente, come trovare le risposte nella base di conoscenza, quali informazioni presentare e come presentarle al meglio.,
