Using Games to Create Language Resources: Successes and Limitations of the Approach [chapter]

Jon Chamberlain, Karën Fort, Udo Kruschwitz, Mathieu Lafourcade, Massimo Poesio
2013 The People's Web Meets NLP  
One of the more novel approaches to collaboratively creating language resources in recent years is to use online games to collect and validate data.  ...  In this chapter we provide a brief overview of collaborative creation and the different approaches that have been used to create language resources, before analysing games used for this purpose.  ...  Acknowledgements We would like to thank Jean Heutte (CREF-CNRS) for his help with the concepts of game flow and for the comments of the reviewers of this chapter.  ...

Individual Resource Games and Resource Redistributions [article]

Nicolas Troquard
2018 arXiv   pre-print
We introduce a class of resource games where resources and preferences are described with the language of a resource-sensitive logic.  ...  One needs however to acknowledge that the agents evolving in the real world have limited access to resources. They have to seek after resource objectives and compete for those resources.  ...  One needs however to acknowledge that the agents evolving in the real world have limited access to resources.
