Looking forward to the Digital Humanities Unconference at UNC Charlotte

  1. Why I come to THATCamp Piedmont:
    1. I am looking for practitioners of NLP in a language and literature teaching context since I am working on Using NLP tools to automate production and correction of interactive learning material  (presented at Calico 2012)
    2. for the Learning Exercise Creation Engines (presented at EUROCALL 2007) I developed.
  2. A little about myself:
    1. My Ph.D. thesis expanded the close reading of textual variants in the German editorial schools of Hans Zäch and the use of the computer-generated textual concordances in the interpretation and selection of textual variants into a corpus linguistic-inspired approach, that traced Leitmotifs in the work  (partially first digitized by myself) of the foremost Swiss-German classic as a digital corpus using Regular Expressions programming.
    2. I have since applied my corpus linguistic approach to
      1. the use of machine translation software
      2. the automation of learning material creation  (glossing, question generation, differentiation) on the basis of natural language processing of textual  (film subtitles, news) corpora.
