The Sapienza Natural Language Processing Group (Sapienza NLP) is part of the Computer Science Department of the Sapienza University of Rome.

Our group aims at devising and developing innovative approaches to multilingual Natural Language Understanding. We pursue a vision focused on integrating explicit, symbolic knowledge with deep learning.

The group's work is financed by several sources of funding, including ERC grants, other EU and national projects, and the Babelscape Sapienza spin-off.

SapienzaNLP @ ACL2020

We are proud to announce that SapienzaNLP has 4 papers accepted at ACL: 2 long, 1 short, and a demo, making up almost half of the accepted papers from Italian institutions (4 out of 9). Our works lie in the areas of lexical semantics, multimodal representation learning and multilinguality.

VerbAtlas is now out!

We are proud to announce that VerbAtlas 1.0 (verbatlas.org) is finally available for download.
Developed at the Sapienza NLP group, the multilingual Natural Language Processing group at the Sapienza University of Rome, VerbAtlas is a novel large-scale manually-crafted semantic resource for wide-coverage, intelligible and scalable Semantic Role Labeling. The goal of VerbAtlas is to manually cluster WordNet synsets that share similar semantics into a set of semantically-coherent frames.

SyntagNet is now out!

We are proud to announce that SyntagNet 1.0 (http://syntagnet.org) is finally available for download. Developed at the Sapienza NLP group, the multilingual Natural Language Processing group at the Sapienza University of Rome, SyntagNet is a manually-curated large-scale lexical-semantic combination database which associates pairs of concepts with pairs of co-occurring words. The goal of SyntagNet is to capture sense distinctions evoked by syntagmatic relations, hence providing information which complements with the essentially paradigmatic knowledge shared by currently available Lexical Knowledge Bases.

Welcome to the all-new Sapienza NLP website!

We are proud to launch our all-new website! Redesigned from the ground up with modern standards in mind, the Sapienza NLP website will be the main showcase for our research.

Under the guidance of Prof. Roberto Navigli, the Sapienza NLP group has continuously grown over the last few years and now it features 4 post doctoral research fellows and 12 PhD students. Click "Read More" to know more about them and their research activity!
