The area of expertise of Computational Pragmatics Lab is unstructured data analysis. We study recommending systems and services, develop methods for multimodal clustering and classification that allow profiling user interests based on various modalities. We do not treat data mining and machine learning models as black boxes and focus on developing interpretable algorithms.
We work in natural language processing (NLP). The focus of research lies in such areas as question-answering and information extraction. The Laboratory examines learning methods, in particular, transfer learning and domain adaptation techniques in multilingual settings, and applies these methods in practice. The Laboratory advances digital Russian studies by creating new annotated data sources, that represent society changes and such complex phenomena as education and economy digitalization.
