DFKI-LT - About

The LT lab consists of two groups, the Text Analytics Group in Berlin, headed by Prof. Dr. Hans Uszkoreit, and the Multilingual Technologies Group in Saarbrücken, headed by Prof. Dr. Josef van Genabith.

Our mission is to ease the use of human languages by machines and to improve solutions that benefit from language use. We conduct advanced research in language technology and provide novel computational techniques for processing text, speech and knowledge. We strive for a deeper understanding of human language and thought, studying the true needs of the end user and the demands of the market.

We develop novel and improved solutions related to Information and Knowledge Management, Document Production, and Natural Communication.

Key areas of activity include Text Analytics for Big Data, Machine Translation, and Human-Robot Interaction.
