College de France annual chair for Benoît Sagot

Benoît Sagot has been elected to hold the annual chair in informatics and digital sciences of the Collège de France for the academic year 2023/24.

Created in partnership with Inria, the annual chair in Informatics and Digital Sciences reflects a shared desire to highlight the importance of this scientific discipline and the need to give it its rightful place.

Benoît Sagot’s current research focuses on language models, machine translation, the development of linguistic resources and computational linguistics, with a particular interest in French in all its variety and in less resourced languages. His course for 2023-2024 will provide an overview of this fast-changing discipline and the challenges it faces.
