Antonios Anastasopoulos (George Mason University) “NLP Beyond the Top-100 Languages”

Abstract
The availability of large multilingual pre-trained language models has opened up exciting pathways for developing NLP technologies for languages with scarce resources. In this talk I will advocate for the need to go beyond the most common languages in multilingual evaluation, and on the challenges of handling new, unseen-during-training languages and varieties. I will also share some of my experiences with working with indigenous and other endangered language communities and activists.

Thamar Solorio (University of Houston) “Style Transfer for Data Augmentation in Sequence Labeling Tasks”

Abstract
I will present our work on data augmentation using style transfer as a way to improve domain adaptation in sequence labeling tasks. The target domain is social media data, and the task is named entity recognition (NER). The premise is that we can transform the labelled out of domain data into something that stylistically is more closely related to the target data. Then we can train a model on a combination of the generated data and the smaller amount of in domain data to improve NER prediction performance. I will show recent empirical results on these efforts.
