We you to participate in our shared task on Swiss German Language Detection. The goal is to build a system that can automatically identify whether a snippet of text is written in Swiss German. A successful system will need to be able to handle (noisy) inputs from multiple domains.
We will provide participants with samples of swiss german texts from a variety of sources, such as previously established corpora, as well as gathered from social media sites. We encourage participants to use any additional resources.
