NIST has established the Technical Language Processing Community of Interest (TLP COI) to help bridge the gap between between AI-assisted Natural Language Processing (NLP) and technical, engineering, and industrial applications by providing best practice methods and tools to develop, adapt, and evaluate systems utilizing human-generated language in technical domains.
The Technical Language Processing Community of Interest (TLP COI) is seeking to develop best practices guidelines on how to tailor Natural Language Processing (NLP) tools to technical and engineering text-based data: technical language processing (TLP). Developed guidelines will be technology- and vendor-agnostic and will address the current needs of industry to have independent guidance based on user requirements and measurement science research.
The TLP COI welcomes members from government, industry, and academia interested in creating better synergy between end users, the research community, and solution providers to reduce complexity, cost, and delay of adoption of TLP solutions. If you are interested in joining the COI, please email tlp-coi [at] nist.gov (tlp-coi[at]nist[dot]gov) and provide your full name, e-mail address, company, and title. Please also provide a short description of "what do you hope to get out of working with this group?"
The TLP COI uses Slack for asynchronous communication with the group. If you would like to join the Slack workspace, please email tlp-coi [at] nist.gov (tlp-coi[at]nist[dot]gov) to be invited to the workspace.
The TLP COI has a community-built list of useful TLP resources on GitHub. The community welcomes new submissions to the list, please follow the Contribution Guidelines when submitting. Information on previous events is located on the Events page.
The TLP COI brings together interested participants to discuss ongoing and future directions for text analysis of technical data. The output from this group will influence guidelines and roadmap documents to improve adoption of TLP solutions.
The TLP COI wants to advance research and development initiatives to advance TLP for smart manufacturing and other industrial applications. The following list defines the scope and focus of the TLP COI:
