LatinX in AI (LXAI) is hosting a virtual social to connect LatinX identifying AI Researchers and Engineers around the Conference on Empirical Methods in Natural Language Processing taking place November 16th -20th, 2020.
This affinity social is aimed at LatinX individuals working on or interested in NLP with a goal to increase the visibility of researchers of LatinX origin in a field that has been dominated by countries such as China, USA and Germany.
Those already working on NLP will have the opportunity to connect with fellow LatinX and make their own work known, while those new to the field will benefit from the scientific exchange, guidance and advice of researchers with their same background. Participants will be able to engage in discussions about NLP (formal and informal) and to share their thoughts on how to increase the presence of LatinX in NLP.
Diversity and inclusion are key to achieve better and more creative science. By promoting this event, EMNLP will not only advocate for an underrepresented community, it will also help to promote the development of technologies and language resources that take into account the different languages that exist in Latin America.
