Date Event
OCT-04 The Deep-Thought Consortium holds its Final Project Review in Lido di Camaiore (Italy) and receives high acclaim for its Heart of Gold integration and innovative applications; the project has used and improved DELPH-IN resources and prepares to contribute additional technology to the open-source repository. Following the review, the consortium organizes a Roadmap Workshop on future applications of hybrid text understanding with some 20 participants from both academia and industry.
SEP-04 As part of an on-going effort to harmonize distribution and documentation of DELPH-IN resources, the infrastructure relocates to a new server provided by the Oslo University MT Research Group. New services go on-line, including a unified mailing list manager, concise web access statistics, and a wiki forum for collaborative publishing.
SEP-04 The EU-funded Deep-Thought Consortium (coordinated at Saarland University by Hans Uszkoreit and Melanie Siegel), completes the integration of its Heart of Gold core architecture framework, an ensemble of ‘shallow’ and ‘deep’ NLP engines for (currently) six major languages; see the on-line demonstration.
AUG-04 As part of the 20th International Conference on Computational Linguistics, DELPH-IN members organize the 5th International Workshop on Linguistically Interpreted Corpora (LINC-04) in Geneva (Switzerland). Reflecting the large number of high-quality presentations at the workshop, the organizers prepare a follow-up publication as a journal special issue.
AUG-04 DELPH-IN members organize a workshop on Semantics in Grammar Engineering in conjunction with the 11th International Conference on Head-Driven Phrase Structure Grammar in Leuven (Belgium).
SEP-03 As part of the Second International Workshop on Treebanks and Linguistic Theory, Stephan Oepen gives an invited overview presentation of the LinGO Redwoods treebank initiative: Treebanks versus Linguistic Theory. — Anyone Need Grammars?
AUG-03 DELPH-IN members organize the International Workshop on Multilingual Grammar Engineering during the European Summer School for Logic, Language, and Information 2003 in Vienna (Austria).
JUL-03 NTT Communications Research Laboratories launches a project on parsing Japanese dictionary definitions using the DELPH-IN JaCY grammar in conjunction with the LKB, PET, and [incr tsdb()]; based on the LinGO Redwoods approach, the project expects to treebank several tens of thousands of definitions and use the analysis results for knowledge acquisition.
APR-03 The LinGO Laboratory at CSLI Stanford (re-)activates its on-line web interface to the English Resource Grammar.
JAN-03 The Norwegian LOGON Consortium, a machine translation effort funded by the Norwegian government and (proportional to capita) twice the size of Verbmobil starts a four-year grant; LOGON has decided to use MRS for meaning representation and the LKB and LinGO ERG for transfer and generation.
OCT-02 The EU-funded IST consortium Deep-Thought starts a two-year grant for research into the use of ‘deep’ processing in innovative information extraction, email management, and creative authoring applications.
SEP-02 Edinburgh and Stanford Universities start a joint three-year grant on Robust Semantic Interpretation (ROSIE), using the LKB, LinGO ERG, and Reedwoods treebank for research on the integration of discourse-level modelling and stochastic and active learning approaches to disambiguation.
AUG-02 Hans Uszkoreit presents an invited presentation on DELPH-IN research and resources to the 19th International Conference on Computational Linguistics in Taipei (Taiwain).
