NTR organizes and hosts scientific webinars on neural networks and invites speakers from all over the world to present their recent work. 

On October 26 Lidia Pivovarova, University of Helsinki, Finland, presented a technical Zoom webinar on Automatic Detection of Word Meaning Change. 

About the webinar: 

The presentation contained a survey of recent works on diachronic language change, primarily on automatic detection of words that changed their meaning over time. The methods presented are based on various principles: distributional language models and word grammar categories. We also touched potential applications beyond linguistics.
