Work led by CTS Research Fellow receives Honourable Mention at EACL 2021

The paper, entitled Cognition-aware Cognate Detection, was awarded an honourable mention at the 16th Conference on European Chapter on Computational Linguistics (EACL21).

The work is led by Dr Diptesh Kanojia, a Research Fellow at the Centre for Translation Studies (CTS), and tries to probe the role of gaze behaviour in the Natural Language Processing task of Cognate Detection. In addition, it also predicts the gaze-based features and helps improve the task performance by a significant margin.

The paper, which was co-authored by Prashant Sharma, Sayali Ghodekar, Pushpak Bhattacharyya, Gholamreza Haffari, and Malhar Kulkarni, can be found on the Association for Computational Linguistics Anthology website, and here is the reference:
