Here is the updated scientific production of the GETALP research team (Study Group for Machine Translation and Automated Processing of Languages and Speech), part of the research area "Data and Knowledge Processing at Large Scale" within the LIG, Grenoble Informatics Laboratory.

The goal of the GETALP is to contribute significantly to the emergence of ubilingual computing, in the context of the development of ubiquitous computiing. This goal requires to carry out researches, often pluridisciplinary, in computer sciences, in linguistics and psycholinguistics, in semantics (link with ontologies), in pragmatics (for the dialogue), and in signal and speech processing.

The GETALP team is organized around six main research topics:
  1. Machine Translation (MT) and Computer-Aided Translation (CAT)
  2. Natural Language Processing (NLP) and associated platforms
  3. Linguistic Data Resources Collection and Construction
  4. Information Systems Localization
  5. Automatic Recognition of Speech, Speakers, Sounds and Dialect
  6. Sounds analysis and Interaction within Perceptive Environments

The activities linked to these research topics share five challenges:
  • to make computer applications multilingual and "ubilingual";
  • to computerize under-resourced and rarely written languages by adapting existing resources;
  • to make language-based communication multimodal (text, speech, gestures);
  • to propose and implement task-related evaluation methods and tools;
  • to use contributive interaction to collect resources, improve tranlations, and communicate with "guaranteed meaning".
