Research - NAVER LABS Europe


We create new connections through advanced research and technology in vision, text, machine learning, UX and ethnography.
Our multidisciplinary approach to AI allows us to tackle challenges from different perspectives and gives greater meaning to our work.

Computer Vision

Visual search, scene parsing, human sensing, action recognition, pose estimation and lifelong learning for AR, robotics, search and autonomous driving.

3D Vision

In a connected world of people, robots and self-driving vehicles, we naturally need to have a good understanding of the 3D world we live in.

Search and Recommendation

Human-centric, multimodal strategies and modules built on accountable algorithms for transparency and trust.

Machine Learning and Optimization

Innovative models to design algorithms and imagine new tasks that push the boundaries and bring to life intelligent systems in our everyday lives.

Natural Language Processing

Language technology to seamlessly communicate in an increasingly connected world: understanding, generation, translation, speech, modelling.

UX and Ethnography

Getting a deep understanding of our environment to design services with which we can seamlessly interact.

Systemic AI

At the crossroads of AI and software engineering research, addressing the challenges of integrating AI/ML components.

Data, code and models released by NAVER LABS Europe.

a distributional approach to controlled text generation

Debiasing large pretrained language models using distributional control

A novel framework for controlled NLG called 'Generation with Distributional Control', achieves great generality on the types of constraints that can be imposed and has a large potential to remedy the problem of bias in language models.
