About Martin Duneld

I am a lecturer/researcher working at the Department of Computer and Systems Sciences at Stockholm University.

My main interests lie in information extraction and retrieval, and in particular automatic text summarization, but I’ve been known to dabble in a variety of language technology related tool development. Currently my main work lies within the health domain.

I particularly enjoy teaching, as well as studying, anything even remotely related to computational linguistics and language technology. I also teach database and web oriented programming.

Seminar on three Human Language Technology research projects here at DSV

Hercules Dalianis, Sumithra Velupillai and Martin Hassel held a lunch seminar on three Human Language Technology research projects here at DSV.

Hercules presented results from the project Tvärsök which aims to bridge the language gap between the Nordic countries. More specifically, if you search for documents in Swedish you should be able to find corresponding information in Danish or Norwegian if such are lacking for Swedish. The idea is that while you might have active knowledge of… Continue reading
