NOTE 1/1/2015: My university just moved to a new domain .eus.
                           All urls and my email also moved, but old .es will be working for some time.

This page is mainly for research dissemination, I guess. I am currently involved in the following research issues:   
  • Processing of Basque
  • Measures of relatedness/similarity among concepts, words, phrases and sentences
  • Word Sense Disambiguation and Named Entity Disambiguation  
  • Semantic Role Labeling
  • Information Extraction
  • Knowledge Acquisition and Machine Reading
  • Domain adaptation of NLP tools and resources
  • Applications of semantic processing to IR, CLIR, QA and MT

Blog in Basque and English about the IXA NLP group.
