CLARIN 2021. The State of the Infrastructure and Opportunities for ILC
This seminar is dedicated to CLARIN ERIC, the infrastructure for digital language resources, of which ILC-CNR is the Executive Institution under the Coordination of Monica Monachini.
Starting from my recent experience as a CLARIN Ambassador and a member of the Steering Committee of CLARIN France, I will try to outline the current state of the infrastructure, with the most recent developments in particular in terms of technology and services (we mention, among others, the Federated Content Search and the CLARIN Switchboard).
I will also present an overview of the excellence, in terms of NLP resources, skills and services, of the various National Consortia, to open a discussion on how to best enhance the resources and skills of ILC and the national community.
I will conclude with a review of the projects and activities in which CLARIN ERIC and CLARIN-IT are currently active and the opportunities for collaboration that arise among ILC and research groups of various National Consortia.
