Technology Evaluations

LDC provides support to many common task technology evaluations. Evaluations are designed for researchers working on a particular problem; participants develop and test systems addressing that problem using training and test data provided by LDC.

LDC's evaluation support is principally two-fold: LDC develops data sets for evaluation tasks in consultation with task sponsors and administers the distribution of data to participants via licensing arrangements that allow the data to be used for the purposes of the evaluation.

Consistent with its mission to share data as broadly as possible, LDC works with evaluation sponsors to release evaluation materials into the LDC Catalog as soon as practicable.
