NLPX - An XML-IR System with a Natural Language Interface

Alan Woodley, Shlomo Geva
2004 Australasian Document Computing Symposium  
The system accepts queries in both natural language (English) and formal XPath-like format (NEXI) and matches to a set of relevant and appropriately-sized elements using an effective ranking scheme.  ...  Thus, users expect XML-IR systems to return highly relevant results that are more precise than entire documents. This paper presents such a system.  ...  However, work on an XML-IR interface is still largely un-documented and many problems remain unsolved.  ...

NLPX at INEX 2004 [chapter]

Alan Woodley, Shlomo Geva
2005 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
This paper presents NLPX -an XML-IR system with a natural language interface that is user friendly enough so it can be used intuitively, but sophisticated enough to be able to handle complex structured  ...  The formal language queries can then be processed by many existing XML-IR systems.  ...  In this paper we present an alternative interface for XML-IR systems, NLPX, that allows users to express their need in natural language.  ...

NLPX at INEX 2005 [chapter]

Applying transformation-based error-driven learning to structured natural language queries

A. Woodley, S. Geva
2005 2005 International Conference on Cyberworlds (CW'05)  
In previous research we developed NLPX, a natural language interface to an XML-IR system. Here we present additions we have made to NLPX.  ...  Our results show that TBL is effective for structured NLQs, and that structured NLQs a viable interface tor XML-IR systems.  ...  We have previously presented NLPX [29, 30] , an XML-IR system with a natural language interface. NLPX accepts natural language queries (NLQs) and translates them into NEXI queries.  ...

NLPX at INEX 2006 [chapter]

Alan Woodley, Shlomo Geva
Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
INEX's NLP task investigates the potential of using natural language to specify structured queries. QUT has participated in the NLP task with our system NLPX since its inception.  ...  In order to use XML-IR systems users must encapsulate their structural and content information needs in a structured query.  ...  The motivations stem from weakness with current XML-IR interfaces.  ...

2005 Text Retrieval Conference  
Second, we compared Zettair's performance when a standard TREC title is used, compared with a natural language query, and a query expanded with synonyms.  ...  For the Terabyte track we experimented with an open source IR system, Zettair and performed two types of experiments.  ...  We would also like to thank Daniel Tao who assisted us with laboratory experiments.  ...

Narrowed Extended XPath I [chapter]

What XML-IR Users May Want [chapter]

Alan Woodley, Shlomo Geva, Sylvia L. Edwards
Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
For our involvement we conducted a user experiment using an XML-IR system (GPX) and three interfaces: a standard keyword interface, a natural language interface (NLPX) and a query-by-template interface  ...  information they would need to interact with an XML-IR system and how would they want to see XML-IR results presented.  ...  In previous years we have developed a laboratory XML-IR system [1] and natural language interface [4] for participation in both of those tracks.  ...

Formulating XML-IR Queries

Alan Woodley
2007 unpublished
This paper outlines four potential query formation interfaces: keywords, formal language, natural language and query by templates.  ...  XML information retrieval systems differ from traditional information retrieval systems by returning relevant portions of documents, rather than entire documents.  ...  Recently several natural language interfaces have been developed for XML-IR systems. One such system is NLPX [8] .  ...
