Working closely with Philippe Langlais, Guy Lapalme and my other colleagues, I participate in various projects within the Laboratoire de recherche appliquée en linguistique informatique (RALI). Here are the most important. Some of these projects have led to peer-reviewed scientific publications.

CO.SHS: Open Cyberinfrastructure for the Humanities and Social Sciences
2017-2020, in collaboration with Érudit, the leading digital dissemination platform of HSS research in Canada
Leads: Philippe Langlais and Vincent Larivière
CO.SHS is dedicated to supporting research in the humanities and social sciences and the arts and letters in multiple ways. Financed by the Canada Foundation for Innovation as part of the Cyberinfrastructure initiative (read the funding announcement), the project is overseen by Vincent Larivière, associate professor of information science at the École de bibliothéconomie et des sciences de l’information, holder of the Canada Research Chair on the Transformations of Scholarly Communication and scientific director of Érudit.
The Allium prototype, developed by the RALI (Philippe Langlais and Fabrizio Gotti, Université de Montréal), aims to increase information discoverability in Érudit through the extraction of open information. It uses the semantics of the plain text of journal articles to explore the deep syntactic dependencies between the words of a sentence. The direct extraction of indexed facts allows to expand user experience and offers the possibility of browsing based on concepts, themes and named entities in context. The implementation of external links pointing to knowledge bases such as Wikipedia further enriches the browsing experience.
