The 1st Research Dive on Natural Language Processing for Sustainable Development – Technical Report


In July 2016, Pulse Lab Jakarta organized a Research Dive under the theme Natural Language Processing for Sustainable Development. Over the span of two days, 19 computational linguistic experts and advisors from 18 different universities and government research institutions were invited to collaboratively explore and analyse data from Translator Gator (a people-powered language game developed by the Lab and which translates words from English to any of six common Indonesian languages, namely Bahasa Indonesia, Sunda, Minang, Melayu, Jawa, and Bugis).  Split into four groups, participants were tasked with assessing the quality of the translations, visualizing the data to make better sense of it, and filling in important translation gaps in some of the dictionaries. This technical report presents the extended abstracts of their research and results.
