Futurity Workshop 2017

Artificial Intelligence struggles to enrich machines with human-like features, therefore accessing meaning and sharing it with computers is one of the main challenges that the computational linguistics domain faces nowadays. While still far from completely decoding hidden messages in political speeches, computer scientists, language engineers and linguists have joined efforts in making the language more machine-understandable.

In this context, the specific aim of FUTURITY-2017 is to establish a consolidated community of internationally appreciated language technology practitioners from different backgrounds, with interests in real-life applications, bridging the gap between research and innovation in order to make sense of crowdsourced knowledge and foreseen future societal challenges.

Since today we found ourselves in an era in which software learns from its users and all of the users are connected, this workshop intends to discuss natural language processing applications which explore the web (with a special emphasis on the social web) in new and innovative ways, in order to extract the wisdom of crowds captured within.

The scientific program of FUTURITY-2017 invites papers focusing on the following (and related) topics:
    • Modeling search to extract knowledge from social web;
    • Collaborative and interactive search;
    • Conversational search interaction;
    • Community behavioral analysis;
    • Diversity and aggregated search;
    • Creating and using structured social media-based resources through social web mining;
    • Strategic early warning systems and detection of week signals;
    • Interaction with the web as a mental, social and physical extension of people;
    • Semantic search;
    • Extracting and mining forum data;
    • Social media and linked data;
    • Using the social web to foster innovation;
    • Exploring the digital cultural heritage;
    • Exploring crowdsourcing and user communities;
    • Intelligent personal assistants methodologies in real-life scenarios;
    • Collaborative tools and services for citizens, organizations, communities.
