- Last year, at Celtic Knot 2020, I gave a presentation on Search Support for Minority Languages; a collaboration—with VIGNERON and Iriep to work on improving language processing for Breton—was born. We started out with high hopes and good cheer, and now, almost a year later, we haven't really gotten anything accomplished—which is probably largely my fault.
:(How'd we get here, what did we learn, and how can we do better next time?
