Bruno Oberle, computational linguist and developer

I am a computational linguist with strong programming and technical skills, experienced in Natural Language Processing (NLP) and machine learning with TensorFlow. I am currently working on automatic coreference resolution and have developed several programs and tools. I have two master degrees, in French Linguistics and in Language Technologies.

Coreference chains in research articles (master thesis)

Regular Expression For Classe Instances (refci)

Search for patterns in list of objects, such as tokens. For example:

[pos="determiner"][pos="noun" lemma="cat"]

to look for a determiner followed by a noun with the lemma cat. This works for objets in any fields, not just for linguistic objects!
