My name is Lucas (pronounced /ly.'ka/) and I work in the field of Natural Language Processing and Human-Robot Interaction. I began contributing to Wikimedia projects with the French-speaking Wiktionary a few years ago, during my Bachelor's degree in Linguistics. Shortly after, I heard about Wikimédia France's Lingua Libre project thanks to the the local group from Lyon (France), and started contributing immediately. Since I don't live in Lyon anymore, I only meet up from time to time with the Cabal of Lyon, for example on the occasion of a monthly meeting at the KoToPo, to discuss and share about Wikimedia projects.
I mostly contribute to the Lingua Libre project, by recording words and phrases (pronounced by myself or by other people), administrating and raising awareness about the project. I had the opportunity to present Lingua Libre at various in-person and remote training sessions, and at online events like ContribuLing and Wikimania.
I was a Lingua-Librist in Residence during the summer 2021. I worked on improving Lingua Libre in various ways, with the aim of including the diversity of French accents in the Dictionnaire des francophones.
