My name is Georgios Petasis, and these are my personal web pages.
Currently I am a research associate at the Software and Knowledge Engineering Laboratory
of the Institute of Informatics and Telecommunications
of N.C.S.R. "Demokritos",
Athens, Greece and a PhD student at the
Institute of Informatics and Telecommunications
of the University of Athens.
My research interests mainly include the areas of
Natural Language Processing (NLP) and Machine
Learning. My current work focuses on the following issues:
The construction of Named-Entity Recognition Systems based on machine learning
techniques that are able to easily adapt to various domains or languages.
The development of Grammatical Inference (GI) algorithms.
The automated construction of lexical resources, such as morphological lexicons,
part of speech taggers, gazetteer look-up lexicons, etc.
The design and development of generic frameworks for Language Engineering. Parts of
this work can be found in the
"Ellogon Language Engineering Platform".

and my work regarding NLP, GI,
Ellogon and Tcl/Tk.
