Shared Tasks and Competitions
Mixed Script Information Retrieval, FIRE :
In 2013, along with my former PhD student Dr. Rishiraj Saha Roy and Prof Prasenjit Majumder, we introduced a couple of shared tasks on Mixed-script IR, which involved language identification and ad hoc retrieval of transliterated documents. This has evolved into one of the most popular shared task tracks in FIRE over the years, and new subtasks, e.g., Mixed-script Question-Answering, have been introduced:
CODS 2017 Data Challenge :
Data Challenge in CODS 2017 (the flagship conference of ACM India KDD) involved differentiating word borrowing from code-mixing.
I am actively involved in the organization of the Panini Linguistics Olympiad, the Indian national version of the International Linguistics Olympiad (IOL). These programs introduce high school students to the fascinating world of languages, linguistics and NLP through puzzles on decoding the rules and patterns of lesser known, often endangered or extinct, languages. Personally, I enjoy designing and solving such puzzles, and training and interacting with the super-smart kids. We hosted the 14th International Linguistics Olympiad in Mysore, India, July 2016. I was the coach-cum-team leader of the Indian national team at IOL 2014 (Beijing), IOL 2015 (Blagoevgrad) and the upcoming IOL 2017 (Dublin). Currently, I am a member of the IOL Board of Directors, and the co-chair of the National Board, Panini Linguistics Olympiad.
