Idiap involved in a new Hasler programme called "SmartWorld".

Idiap Research Institute is pleased to inform its participation in the SmartWorld (Information and Communication for a Better World) programme from the Hasler Foundation. Our project "Semantically Self-Organized Distributed Web Search" (SODS) proposed by Ronan Collobert was one of the projects selected for this programme, out of 87 initial proposal submissions. This project will investigate and implement a new type of Web search dedicated to semantic document retrieval, which will leverage recent advances in natural language processing techniques related to semantic text analysis.
