Linguistic Open Linked Data in QTLeap Deep MT workshop
Abstracts: Since creating the first instantiation of the LLOD cloud diagram in 2012, LLOD has attracted a lot of activity, we have reached an agreement on vocabularies for many aspects of language resources and the number of resources included is continuously on the rise. This growth is documented, for example, by declaring LLOD “the new hot topic in our (= language resource) community” (Nicoletta Calzolari, LREC-2014 closing session). But with substantial amounts of data being available, the focus of activity in the LLOD community is slowly shifting from resource creation to applications of Linguistic Linked Open Data. The primary promise of providing open, but heterogeneously structured and scattered language resources in a more interoperable way has been fulfilled, and it facilitates using and re-using existing language resources in novel contexts. Beyond this, innovative *LLOD-based* applications for common problems in Natural Language Processing, Digital Humanities and linguistics are on the horizon.
