Collaborative Research Projects
For VISEO, collaborative projects constitute a precious support of the production of new knowledge and the elaboration of new solutions.
VISEO is engaged in different European and national projects:
GALATEAS: The principal goal of GALATEAS is to reunite the entirety of innovative technologies in a way that develops a simple low-cost solution. This project must face the challenges of a multilingual analysis of logs and the translation of queries.
LEILAS: LEILAS’ first objective is to propose a multilingual geo-referencing functionality on the content of web pages or of documents, giving them a geographic dimension.
COCLICO: In the perimeters of the COCLICO project funded by the FUI, VISEO realized an RIA application in order to ensure a visual follow-up of the elements of a backlog: tasks, computer glitches or other information managed in a tracker. This application, available in plug-in form, allows one to display and to manipulate comments but also to configure the dashboard in order to adapt to different methodologies (Scrum, Kanban or other specific needs).
ITM Factory : ITM Factory aims to build a software factory to modernize existing or old fashion software without having to fully rebuild them.
SYNODOS : The purpose of SYNODOS is to develop a generic solution for extracting semantics out of medical data and organize this medical information in such a way that it could be used to support epidemiological studies or medical decisions. .
Before joining the VISEO group, Frédérique SEGOND was Principal Scientist and manager of the Parsing and Semantics area (ParSem) at the Xerox Research Centre Europe. She joined Xerox as a research scientist in 1993 and worked on LOCOLEX, an intelligent dictionary lookup (European project COMPASS). Afterwards, within the PARGRAM (Parallel Grammars) project, she was responsible for the design and implementation of a French Lexical Functional Grammar (LFG). She then led the Lexical Sense Disambiguation LSD project where she worked on the EAGLES, ROMANSEVAL and EuroWordNet projects.
Throughout her research career she has developed, worked and coordinated about twenty collaborative research projects such as ALADIN, Europeanna, CACAO and Galateas.
Frédérique earned a PhD in Applied Mathematics at the Ecole des Hautes Etudes in Socil Sciences in Paris where she implemented categorical French grammar at IBM-France. After a one year post-doc at IBM-Watson in Yorktown working on the links between syntax and semantics, she was in charge of starting a research and teaching activity in a French Telecom school.
Frederique is co-author of six books, over 50 scientific papers and 5 patents. She belongs to several scientific committees. She is a member of the CONTINT steering committee of the French National Agency for Research (ANR), President of the Association for Computational Linguistics (ATALA), member of the ELRA board (European Language Resources Association), member of the board of the University Stendhal, and also provides scientific expertise to the European Commission. She is also on the “qualification list” of Professors of the University of Paris 7.
