“The Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (AI Lab) at the Institute of Mathematics and Computer Science, University of Latvia (IMCS UL), founded in 1992, conducts research in natural language processing (NLP) and machine learning (ML). Both research directions are closely related and have gained significant boost through the implementation of numerous innovation projects together with industry partners and through the international cooperation. AI Lab particularly focuses on cross-lingual natural language understanding (NLU) and generation (NLG) by combining knowledge-based and machine learning approaches. Our work on NLU includes speech recognition, information extraction and knowledge graph construction from unstructured texts and audio recordings, as well as image and video data. The work on NLG includes text generation from data and abstract meaning representations, as well text-to-speech synthesis.”
