Talks & Seminars
Natural Language Processing in a Multilingual Context
Pushpak Bhattacharya, IIT Bombay
Date & Time: October 11, 2002 15:30
Venue: CSE Seminar Room
We present our experiences on machine translation among multiple languages. The approach is interlingua based and uses a semantic net like representation called the Universal Networking Language (UNL). UNL is a recently proposed interlingua and is based on the concepts of language independent words, relations and attributes. Our experiences shows that the analysis into the UNL form is a difficult problem, while achieving naturalness in the generation is an equally challenging task - both requiring the heavy use of semantic knowledge. Semantic knowledge is captured in lexical resources like the woirdnet. The talk will also touch upon our work on Indian Language wordnets. This discussion will be preceded by a short introduction to Natural Language Processing which the students should find useful. CSE and IT M.Tech1 students are strongly encouraged to attend this talk.
