In a new project, LangTec gets to shine with its expertise in the areas of Data Science, Machine Learning and Big Data – and this time, actually quite directly. We are pleased to have been awarded a new contract to create comprehensive training materials for an advanced training program for adults. Specifically, we are designing documents for the modules Data Science, Machine Learning and Big Data.

We would be very happy to make our expertise in these areas available to anyone interested in gaining a foothold in this exciting field and learning advanced techniques.

Making a Touristic Chatbot Extra Smart

Big congratulations to Lang.Tec on winning the public tender of a large German tourism project! Part of the project will involve improving and extending an open data Knowledge Graph. The additional information will be obtained by extraction from unstructured description texts on various entities such as hotels, events, restaurants, tours and others.

To accomplish this, Lang.Tec will employ state-of-the-art natural language processing (NLP) techniques to extract touristically relevant information and add it in structured form to the Knowledge Graph. This will permit the associated chatbot to access a wealth of additional structured information, which will help it provide more useful and accurate answers to users.

In addition to improving the Knowledge Graph, Lang.Tec will also develop a machine-learning-based module to answer difficult user questions. This module will support the chatbot in understanding context and intent of users’ questions, thus enabling it to provide more relevant and helpful answers for hard questions.

Overall, Lang.Tec’s work on the German Touristic project will help improve the data-driven capabilities of the chatbot, making it a more valuable resource for travellers and tourism professionals in Germany. We very much look forward to experiencing the positive impact this will have on the chatbot user experience.

New project: In-depth Analysis of an extensive ontology for a leading social network

We are delighted to announce the start of a new project with a well-known major social network. Its multilingual ontology, which is a central element in many of their internal services, has been curated manually so far and has grown continually over the years. Now it is time for a critical analysis of the status quo of this knowledge representation and to develop suggestions for the future curation and further development of said ontology. In this LangTec assists with its expertise in ontologies, knowledge graphs, computational linguistics and language technology.

We visited the client on-site for the official project kick-off and were warmly welcomed despite some rather windy autumn weather outside.
