LIIR Research Team
The Language Intelligence & Information Retrieval (LIIR) research team of the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Belgium has 4 open PhD positions and 1 open postdoc position!
- Phd- Deep learning for natural language understanding
- Phd- Multimodal querying for mobile search
- Phd- Hierarchical text classification with a large number of categories
- Phd- Spatio-temporal information extraction from non-well formed texts
- Postdoc- Text Mining of Biomedical Texts
LIIR is part of the Human Computer Interaction (HCI) unit in the Department of Computer Science. The research of the LIIR group strives to develop a general framework for information processing of texts. The core of the research regards problems of information retrieval, extraction, linking, summarization and search focused on the textual medium in a multimedia context often involving “big data” sets. Fundamental problems with regard to text understanding, mining, indexing, and retrieval models are studied. The developed technologies are applied in the domains of news, business intelligence, bioinformatics, police and intelligence services, legal documents, electronic mail, user generated content, and the World Wide Web. LIIR encourages research on the interrelation between information retrieval and other disciplines, especially computational linguistics, machine learning, data mining, automated reasoning, and multimedia processing.
Under the supervision of Marie-Francine Moens the team participates in several research projects sponsored by the European Commission, Belgian and Flemish governments and academic research institutions. In some projects the group collaborates with important industrial partners.
