I lead the Language Technologies Unit at the Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC), which is at the forefront of advancing natural language processing (NLP) through pioneering research, development, and the application of high-performance computing (HPC). We specialize in the creation of massive language models and unsupervised learning for less-resourced languages and domains. Endorsed by the Spanish and Catalan governments, our Unit is dedicated to developing vital open-source resources and infrastructure for language technology and artificial intelligence, specifically tailored for the Spanish and Catalan languages. I have been engaged in various EU-funded international projects and am committed to promoting the transfer of our technological breakthroughs to industry and society at large
