What is your relationship with agricultural information management standards, tools and services?
I work as a professor at Faculty of Agriculture, teaching mathematics and computer science. My research interests are Human Language Technologies (HLT), especially for Serbian language. Serbian language can be treated as a less-resourced language, i.e there is no enough language resources we can use in processing texts in Serbian. So, developing those resources is the most important task for NLP scientists from Serbia. On the other hand, during my professional career I had a lot of contacts with agricultural scientists and noticed that there is a little or none understanding of Human Language Technologies and their significance and application in other sciences. Especially, the link between HLT and agriculture is hard to see and understand. Therefore, I would like to improve that link in Serbia, to raise awareness about significance the language technologies have in modern sciences and to point the benefits agricultural scientists and professionals would have from using HLT.
