Summary: Spanish is one of the most widely spoken languages in the world, however, the development of language technologies for it has not been in the same proportion. This is particularly true for some of its Latin American variants, such as Mexican Spanish. This talk will focus on presenting the development of PLN for Mexican Spanish, emphasizing one of its many research stories related to social network content analysis.
This talk will present some data on the languages spoken in Mexico and on the development of the area of Natural Language Processing in our country. It will describe a research project that combined the efforts of several groups: the identification of abusive language in Mexican tweets. The talk will conclude by presenting some calls for collaboration, intending to increase and improve research in Mexican Spanish.
