As part of the Spring of artificial intelligence seminar series "A Taste of AI at FBK", Carlo Strapparava will hold a seminar on "Natural Language Processing for Creative Language".

Abstract: 
Dealing with creative language and in particular with affective, persuasive and even witty language has often been considered outside the scope of computational linguistics, and, in general, a challenge for AI systems.  Nonetheless, it is possible to exploit current NLP techniques to address some founding aspects of these linguistic phenomena.  We briefly review some computational experiences about these typical creative genres, such as creating catching and witty news titles or producing lyric parodies.
