We invited members of Masakhane, Tosin Adewumi and Perez Ogayo, to
talk about their EMNLP Findings paper that discusses why typical
research is limited for low-resourced NLP and how participatory
research can help.   As a result of participatory research,
Masakhane has many, many success stories: first datasets and
benchmarks in African languages, first research on human evaluation
specifically for MT for low-resource languages, etc. In this
episode, we talked about one of them—MasakhaNER—in more detail. The
hosts for this episode are Pradeep Dasigi and Ana Marasović.
