Orita’s co-mentoring student gives presentation at ACL Student Research Workshop

Sakura Imai, a graduate student at the Waseda’s NLP lab (Kawahara lab), gives a poster presentation at ACL Student Research Workshop.

Naho Orita has been co-mentoring Sakura with Daisuke Kawahara.

Their method, which makes use of parameters in theoretical syntax, largely outperforms a state-of-the-art embedding-based model in multilingual NER (Named Entity Recognition).
