Comprehensive Modeling of Conversational Contributions in Prose Texts (starts 2017)

I am a co-principle investigator ("Co-Applicant") in this project (PI Prof. Sebastian Padó). More information is available at the DFG website.

PSINK (started 2016)

I am a Co-Principle Investigator in this BMBF-funded i:DSem-Verbundprojekt (PSINK - Automatische Erstellung einer Wissensbasis zur Unterstuetzung der Translation von der praeklinischen Forschung in die klinische Anwendung bei Rueckenmarksverletzungen). We develop automatic information extraction methods to populate a database of preclinical experiments in the domain of spinal cord injuries.

Partners are:

KABI: Confidence Estimation for Biomedical Information Extraction (starts 2016)

I am principle investigator in this project funded by MWK Baden-Württemberg and University of Stuttgart.

In the Life Sciences, most information is only available in free text in scientific publications. Automatic methods to extract such knowledge and to provide it in structured databases is challenged by a dilemma: Especially if potentially new information is detected in text, it is unclear if this information is actually correct or if it is wrongly extracted, for instance because the text is formulated in an uncommon way. In this project, methods will be developed which help to estimate the reliability of extracted information from biomedical publications.

CRETA: Center for Reflective Text Analysis (started 2016)

The Chair of Theoretical Computational Linguistics is a partner in this BMBF-funded project in which we work on emotion analysis for literature analysis. Partners at University of Stuttgart are: Institut für Literaturwissenschaft / Germanistische Mediävistik, Institut für Visualisierung und Interaktive Systeme, Historisches Institut / Landesgeschichte, Institut für Sozialwissenschaften / Internationale Beziehungen und Europäische Integration, Institut für Maschinelle Sprachverarbeitung, Institut für Philosophie / Wissenschaftstheorie und Technikphilosophie, Institut für Literaturwissenschaft / Neuere Deutsche Literatur, Institut für Linguistik / Romanistik, Institut für Literaturwissenschaft / Digital Humanities, Stuttgart Research Centre for Text Studies
