Massive vs. Curated Embeddings for Low-Resourced Languages: the Case of Yor\`ub\'a and Twi

no code implementations LREC 2020 Jesujoba Alabi, Kwabena Amponsah-Kaakyire, David Adelani, Cristina Espa{\~n}a-Bonet

In this paper we focus on two African languages, Yor{\`u}b{\'a} and Twi, and compare the word embeddings obtained in this way, with word embeddings obtained from curated corpora and a language-dependent processing.

Demographic Inference and Representative Population Estimates from Multilingual Social Media Data

no code implementations15 May 2019 Zijian Wang, Scott A. Hale, David Adelani, Przemyslaw A. Grabowicz, Timo Hartmann, Fabian Flöck, David Jurgens

In a large experiment over multilingual heterogeneous European regions, we show that our demographic inference and bias correction together allow for more accurate estimates of populations and make a significant step towards representative social sensing in downstream applications with multilingual social media.
