Stephen Beale invited as a visiting professor to De La Salle University in the Philippines
De La Salle University in Manila
Stephen Beale spent most of March in the Philippines working with faculty and students from De La Salle University and the University of the Philippines. He was also a speaker at several venues, including the Philippine Computing Science Congress. The Philippines is a strategic country for Linguist's Assistant, with well-trained mother-tongue linguists and computational linguists working in over 170 languages. Dr. Beale will continue working with these linguists to produce LA implementations for Tagalog and several of the other major regional languages in the country. Another goal is to produce a standard "grammar discovery" procedure that linguists can use with LA in many or all of the remaining languages.
