The main objective of the BASIL project that is being solved within the cross-border cooperation between the regions of Bavaria and the Czech Republic is a prototype of a ‘smart home’ assistance system. This assistance system, based on the recognition of brain waves, is intended for people with limited mobility.


MediaGist-Summarisation and Sentiment Analysis for Evolving Multilingual Media Content

Principal investigator: doc. Ing. Josef Steinberger, Ph.D.
Project number:
FP7-CIG-630786
Duration: 1.3.2014 – 28. 2. 2018
Grantor: 7.RP – EUROPEAN COMMISSION
(see web of research group)

News aggregators gather thousands of news articles every day from across the world and cluster them into news stories. This is even augmented by the increasing amount of accompanied comments, which contain mass opinions about the news events. A promising way to reduce this bulk of highly redundant data is offered by the language technologies known as multidocument text summarisation and sentiment analysis. However, both tasks have to be done in multiple languages.
Thanks to these technologies, Mediagist can detect and explore controversy in world news.


Access to a Lingustically Structured Database of Enquiries from the Language Consulting Centre

Principal investigator: PhDr. Martin Prošek, Ph.D. - Ústav pro jazyk český AV ČR, v. v. i
Co-investigator for P2: Ing. Martin Dostal, Ph.D., Ing. Martin Zíma, Ph.D., Ing. Michal Nykl, Ph.D.
Project number: 
DG16P02B009
Duration: 1. 3. 2016 – 31. 12. 2019
Grantor:
MKČR
(see web of research group)

The main goal of this project is to make a unique linguistic material consisting of questions asked to the language consulting centre of the Institute of the Czech Language of the AS CR, v. v. i., accessible to the general public in a completely new, user-friendly software database of language problems concerning the language counseling centre. To facilitate the processing of queries for entering them into the database a system for semi-automatic editing of data to assist with the structuring of a query will be designed.
