Law Natural Language Processing (LAWNLP)

Type: Contract Project

Duration: from 2020 Jun 29 to 2022 Dec 31

Financed by: Imprensa Nacional-Casa da Moeda

Prime Contractor: R - INESC-ID Lisboa (Other) - Lisboa, Portugal

LAWNLP aims to create a system that helps users to identify relevant Portuguese consumer laws that apply to their situation. More concretely, when using the system, the user should be able to describe a question or problem in natural language, and the system should be able to identify and suggest to the user what are the most relevant laws and parts of the law that are relevant. The project will also explore the use of semantic analysis to create a semantic representation of the Portuguese Consumer Law, which can be used to create a visual representation to further help the user in understanding it.
