Diego Frassinelli "An Empirical Take on Multimodal Natural Language Processing and Comprehension"

Research profile seminar

Diego Frassinelli "An Empirical Take on Multimodal Natural Language Processing and Comprehension"

In this talk I will present an overview of my recent research activities. More specifically, I will focus on four main studies which investigate multimodal language processing from different perspectives. The first study targets the distributional properties of concrete vs. abstract words, which are analysed by looking at their nearest-neighbours and co-occurrences. Next, I will discuss the advantages of combining visual and linguistic information to improve the classification of concrete vs. abstract words. In the third study, I analyse how gestures, prosody and language interact together in facilitating language comprehension. Finally, I will talk about an ongoing study about the language of food in Chinese Mandarine and British English.
