Cross-Language Information Retrieval with Latent Topic Models Trained on a Comparable Corpus [chapter]

Ivan Vulić, Wim De Smet, Marie-Francine Moens
2011 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The probabilistic interlingual representation is incorporated in a statistical language model for information retrieval.  ...  In this paper we study cross-language information retrieval using a bilingual topic model trained on comparable corpora such as Wikipedia articles.  ...  None of these works apply the bilingual LDA model in a cross-lingual information retrieval setting. Cross-language information retrieval is a well-studied research topic (e.g., [8, 19, 24, 18] ).  ...

Natural Language Generation from Pictographs

Leen Sevens, Vincent Vandeghinste, Ineke Schuurman, Frank Van Eynde
2015 Proceedings of the 15th European Workshop on Natural Language Generation (ENLG)  
We present a Pictograph-to-Text translation system for people with Intellectual or Developmental Disabilities (IDD).  ...  The system translates pictograph messages, consisting of one or more pictographs, into Dutch text using WordNet links and an ngram language model.  ...  For Dutch, we created a reverse lemmatizer based on the SoNaR corpus. 8 Each of these surface forms is a hypothesis for the language model, as described in section 5.4.  ...

Creating the DISEQuA Corpus: A Test Set for Multilingual Question Answering [chapter]

Bernardo Magnini, Simone Romagnoli, Alessandro Vallin, Jesús Herrera, Anselmo Peñas, Víctor Peinado, Felisa Verdejo, Maarten de Rijke
2004 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Finally, the result of the joint efforts was the creation of the DISEQuA (Dutch Italian Spanish English Questions and Answers) corpus, a useful and reusable resource that is freely available for the research  ...  Despite the little resources available, the three groups collaborated and managed to formulate and verify a large pool of original questions posed in three different languages: Dutch, Italian and Spanish  ...  We would like to thank all the people at ITC-irst (TCC division) who posed the necessary questions for the monolingual Italian test set.  ...

WikiTranslate: Query Translation for Cross-Lingual Information Retrieval Using Only Wikipedia [chapter]

Dong Nguyen, Arnold Overwijk, Claudia Hauff, Dolf R. B. Trieschnigg, Djoerd Hiemstra, Franciska de Jong
2009 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
This paper presents WikiTranslate, a system which performs query translation for cross-lingual information retrieval (CLIR) using only Wikipedia to obtain translations.  ...  WikiTranslate is evaluated by searching with topics in Dutch, French and Spanish in an English data collection. The systems achieved a performance of 67% compared to the monolingual baseline.  ...  Introduction Cross-lingual information retrieval (CLIR) has become more important in recent years. CLIR enables users to retrieve documents in a different language than their original query.  ...

Tim Gollins, Mark Sanderson
2001 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We compared the results of retrieval experiments using these queries, with other versions created by combining the transitive translations or created by direct translation.  ...  We investigated dictionary based cross language information retrieval using lexical triangulation. Lexical triangulation combines the results of different transitive translations.  ...  Introduction and Background Cross Language Information Retrieval (CLIR) addresses the situation where the query that a user presents to an IR system, is not in the same language as the corpus of documents  ...

Speech technology for unwritten languages

Odette Scharenborg, Lucas Ondel, Shruti Palaskar, Philip Arthur, Francesco Ciannella, Mingxing Du, Elin Larsen, Danny Merkx, Rachid Riad, Liming Wang, Emmanuel Dupoux, Laurent Besacier (+7 others)
2020 IEEE/ACM Transactions on Audio Speech and Language Processing  
Among others, speech is used for human-computer interaction, for instance for information retrieval and on-line shopping.  ...  In the case of an unwritten language, however, speech technology is unfortunately difficult to create, because it cannot be created by the standard combination of pre-trained speechto-text and text-to-speech  ...  The CGN is a corpus of almost 9M words of Dutch spoken in the Netherlands and in Flanders (Belgium) in over 14 different speech styles, ranging from formal to informal.  ...

Relation Extraction for Open and Closed Domain Question Answering [chapter]

Gosse Bouma, Ismail Fahmi, Jori Mur
2011 Interactive Multi-modal Question-Answering  
Both methods improve the performance of the Dutch question answering system Joost.  ...  The IMIX corpus is relatively small and relation instances may contain complex noun phrases that do not occur frequently in the exact same form in the corpus.  ...  To test the effect of including these tables in our QA system Joost, we expanded the number of relevant questions in the CLEF QA test sets with a number of questions that we have created ourselves.  ...
