A maximum-entropy chinese parser augmented by transformation-based learning

Pascale Fung, Grace Ngai, Yongsheng Yang, Benfeng Chen
2004 ACM Transactions on Asian Language Information Processing  
We augment an existing maximum entropy parser with transformation-based learning, creating a parser that can operate at the character level.  ...  Many natural language applications such as spoken-language understanding, machine translation, and information extraction, would benefit from, or even require, high accuracy parsing as a preprocessing  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS The authors would also like to thank Radu Florian at IBM Research for providing the rule templates used by the transformation-based word segmenter and POS tagger.  ...

Data-to-Text Generation with Iterative Text Editing [article]

Zdeněk Kasner, Ondřej Dušek
2021 arXiv   pre-print
The output of the model is filtered by a simple heuristic and reranked with an off-the-shelf pre-trained language model.  ...  Furthermore, we show that our formulation of data-to-text generation opens up the possibility for zero-shot domain adaptation using a general-domain dataset for sentence fusion.  ...  Acknowledgements We would like to thank the anonymous reviewers for the relevant comments.  ...

Speech segmentation and spoken document processing

M. Ostendorf, B. Favre, R. Grishman, D. Hakkani-Tur, M. Harper, D. Hillard, J. Hirschberg, Heng Ji, J.G. Kahn, Yang Liu, S. Maskey, E. Matusov (+5 others)
2008 IEEE Signal Processing Magazine  
A key challenge in moving from text-based documents to such "spoken documents" is that spoken language lacks explicit punctuation and formatting, which can be crucial for good performance.  ...  P rogress in both speech and language processing has spurred efforts to support applications that rely on spoken-rather than written-language input.  ...  POS tagging and parsing, which are well studied and useful techniques for processing text, are now being applied to spoken language transcripts.  ...
