Invited speaker announcement

We are happy to announce that:

Carlo Strapparava will give a talk titled “Computational explorations of creative language“.

Abstract: Dealing with creative language and in particular with affective, persuasive and even humorous 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.
