Building a French-speaking community around UIMA, gathering research, education and industrial partners, mainly in Natural Language Processing and Speech Recognizing domains

Abstract : We report on the efforts the UN-LINA has made to build a UIMA French-speaking community both in Natural Language Processing and Speech Recognizing domains that would bring together researchers, industrials and educational interests. The intentions of building this community are twofold: to encourage the French-speaking academic and industrial organizations which have not yet adopt a middleware solution to use UIMA as a common development framework and middleware architecture for their research and engineering projects; to improve the collaborative development of common UIMA-based NLP tools and components for processing French. We present the services we set up as well as the resources we distribute freely under open licences to accomplish this objective. Most of them are currently available on the uima-fr.org Web Portal. They consist of: A web portal to discuss and exchange information about UIMA; A bundle of scripts and resources for automatically installing the whole of the Apache UIMA SDK; A bundle of UIMA-based components including some French NLP preprocessing components, a type mapper and a semantic rule-based analyser; A bundle of UIMA tools including an Analysis Engine Apache Maven archetype and an advanced web rest server; Course and training materials.
