Aaivu organization is an opensource organization founded by Dr.Uthayasanker Thayasivam, at the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, University of Moratuwa to enhance and enrich the lives of the community who will benefit from NLP.
- We engage in NLP based projects to adapt the projects that were done for languages such as English to local languages such as Tamil and Sinhala.
- We use techniques such as word embedding to understand and analyse the languages and implement them in a useful manner.
- We do Data Mining to support these ventures.
This API is used to check the quality of the captured image for tesseract OCR. Tesseract OCR works best when there is a clear segmentation of the foreground text from the background. It is easy to instruct the user get a best-fit image rather than doing preprocessing on the images.
This research is about developing a NMT system using Transformer architecture for the under-resourced, domain-specific English to Sinhala translation task. The translation quality is improved by exploring effective ways of incorporating Part-of-Speech (POS) information and subword techniques.
The dialogue policy optimization in task oriented concversational agents in low resource setting is a open research project. We have develop a novel approach for dialogue policy optimization using Rienforcement Learning. The methodology is based on Self-play and a novel sampling technique that prioratizes failed dialogues over successful ones.
A data-driven approach to model a simulation environment.
Data-Driven instruction strategies for Sri Lankan high schools.
Semantic Table Interpretation is the use of external knowledge bases or ontologies to provide context to tabular data sources. Data usually loses its context when converted into tabular structures. Hence, mapping these data back into its original context is non trivial. Since table data is one of most widespread structures in use, the information loss is significant. In this project, we introduce a two novel algorithms, ReleX and STEM, to derive meaning full relationships between table columns and to identify table entities with context using web ontologies.
Tamizhi-Net OCR is a tool that extract text from scanned Pdf/Image. The system covers Tamil, Sinhala and English languages.

How does Aaivu organization impact its domain?
Aaivu organization helps to eliminate the challenges that are prevailing when a technique is adapted to the local language. Read this article about tamil opensource landscape and the opportunities and challenges that are prevailing in this domain,to get a better understanding.
What are the innovations that are done through Aaivu?
Aaivu organization, addresses the discrepencies when NLP related projects are applied to languages that have a significant morphology, which needs new techniques to be invented and adapted to cope up with it.
