Every year, the Lorentz Center and NWO together organize an ICT with Industry workshop. This year the KB has also provided a case: ARTificial Intelligence for Simplified Texts (ARTIST).
Are you a young scientist with a background in ICT and do you have a creative and inquisitive mind? Do you like to think outside-the-box? Would you like to get into contact with industrial partners such as KB, RTL, Axini, SIG or Philips and solve a case together? Then apply for the “ICT with Industry 2022” Lorentz Workshop.
Every year, the Lorentz Center and NWO together organize an ICT with Industry workshop. During five days a group of about 50 researchers from IT and Computer Science from a wide range of universities (within the Netherlands and Europe) will work together extensively on challenging problems proposed by companies.
This year the KB has also provided a case: ARTificial Intelligence for Simplified Texts (ARTIST). During the ICT with Industry workshop we aim to explore the possibilities to make news articles, books and other publications more accessible to illiterate people by applying AI techniques to automatically rewrite publications.
This is the third time the KB joins the ICT with Industry workshop. In 2020 we worked on ‘Improving Access to Early Modern Gothic Texts with NLP and Machine Learning’. In 2019 we worked on ‘Automatic Cataloguing of Textual Cultural Heritage Objects’. The results of that workshop have been incorporated in the whitepaper ‘Exploration possibilities Automated Generation of Metadata’. For an impression of the 2019 workshop you can watch a short ICT with Industry workshop video impression down below or NWO ICT with Industry - Vlog's by Myrthe (research master computational linguistics).
For more information about the upcoming workshop and details on our and the other cases, please visit the ICT with Industry 2022 webpage.
We hope to see you at ICT with Industry 2022!
