MADAR (Mul­ti-Ara­bic Dialect Appli­ca­tions and Resources) is a three-year joint project among the NLP Group at Carnegie Mel­lon Uni­ver­si­ty in Qatar (CMU‑Q), the Com­pu­ta­tion­al Approach­es to Mod­el­ing Lan­guage (CAMEL) Lab at New York Uni­ver­si­ty Abu Dhabi (NYUAD), and Colum­bia Uni­ver­si­ty. The project also involves col­lab­o­ra­tors from the Uni­ver­si­ty of Bahrain (UoB).

The project aims at improv­ing dialec­tal Ara­bic pro­cess­ing by:

  • devel­op­ing resources for Ara­bic Dialect mod­el­ing, includ­ing the cre­ation of a 25-city mul­ti-dialect lex­i­con and a 25-city mul­ti-dialect par­al­lel cor­pus;
  • devel­op­ing machine trans­la­tion sys­tems among dialects, dialects and Eng­lish, dialects and Stan­dard Ara­bic; and
  • devel­op­ing dialect iden­ti­fi­ca­tion sys­tems that can work on a vari­ety of gran­u­lar­i­ty lev­els.

The MADAR Project is the largest in scale and depth to date when it comes to work­ing on nat­ur­al lan­guage pro­cess­ing of Ara­bic dialects.“
