McCrae, John P., & Fransen, Theodorus. (2019). Cardamom: Comparative deep models for minority and historical languages. Paper presented at the International Conference Language Technologies for All (LT4All): Enabling Linguistic Diversity and Multilingualism Worldwide, Paris, France, 05-06 December.
This paper gives an overview of the Cardamom project, which aims to close the resource gap for minority and under-resourced languages by means of deep-learning-based natural language processing (NLP) and exploiting similarities of closely-related languages. The project further extends this idea to historical languages, which can be considered as closely related to their modern form, and as such aims to provide NLP through both space and time for languages that have been ignored by current approaches.
