The advent of humanoid robots has enabled a new approach to investigating the acquisition of language, and we report on the development of robots able to acquire rudimentary linguistic skills. Our work focuses on early stages analogous to some characteristics of a human child of about 6 to 14 months, the transition from babbling to first word forms. We investigate one mechanism among many that may contribute to this process, a key factor being the sensitivity of learners to the statistical distribution of linguistic elements. As well as being necessary for learning word meanings, the acquisition of anchor word forms facilitates the segmentation of an acoustic stream through other mechanisms. In our experiments some salient one-syllable word forms are learnt by a humanoid robot in real-time interactions with naive participants.
The basic purpose of thematic coding (or "tagging") is data retrieval. It is used to classify text according to theme, so that later on, when doing analysis, it easy to retrieve all passages that relate to a given topic. The essence of thematic coding is classification. Consider, for example, the following passage:
Two days ago I arrived in Erfurt in order to visit the federal competition young scientists (Jugend Forscht) . I reported about the project typology by Till Speicher and Paul Wagner which I supervised over the last half year and which already won many awards . Saturday night they have already won a special award donated by the Gesellschaft fuer Informatik this award has the title “special award for a contribution which demonstrates particularly the usefulness of computer science for Society.” (Sonderpreis fuer eine Arbeit, die in besonderer Art und Weise den Nutzen der Informatik verdeutlicht.)
A look at new software that could transform journalism AP Images In a few short years, we've learned to delegate all manner of tasks to computers. For music recommendations or driving directions or academic scouring, we readily turn to our clever machines.
What is Wordnik? Wordnik is a new way to discover meaning. This page will give you a quick overview of what you can do, learn, and share with Wordnik.
MBSP is a text analysis system based on the TiMBL and MBT memory based learning applications developed at CLiPS and ILK . It provides tools for Tokenization and Sentence Splitting, Part of Speech Tagging, Chunking, Lemmatization, Relation Finding and Prepositional Phrase Attachment. The general English version of MBSP has been trained on data from the Wall Street Journal corpus. Download Documentation
The AMiCA (“Automatic Monitoring for Cyberspace Applications”) project aims to mine relevant social media (blogs, chat rooms, and social networking sites) and collect, analyse, and integrate large amounts of information using text and image analysis. The ultimate goal is to trace harmful content, contact, or conduct in an automatic way. Essentially, we take a cross-media mining approach that allows us to detect risks “on-the-fly”. When critical situations are detected (e.g. a very... <p style="text-align:right;color:#A8A8A8"></p>

At the Brains, Minds, and Machines symposium held during MIT's 150th birthday party, Technology Review reports that Prof. Noam Chomsky derided researchers in machine learning who use purely statistical methods to produce behavior that mimics something in the world, but who don't try to understand the meaning of that behavior. The transcript is now available, so let's quote Chomsky himself: It's true there's been a lot of work on trying to apply statistical models to various linguistic problems.
29 September 2010 Last updated at 11:20 ET The software has been developed for smart phones A system which allows psychologists to track people's emotional behaviour through their phones has been successfully road-tested by scientists. St Andrews University researchers have developed in-built phone sensors to work out how people's emotions are influenced by their surroundings. The system, EmotionSense, uses sensors and speech-recognition software.
This course is designed to introduce students to the fundamental concepts and ideas in natural language processing (NLP), and to get them up to speed with current research in the area. It develops an in-depth understanding of both the algorithms available for the processing of linguistic information and the underlying computational properties of natural languages. Wordlevel, syntactic, and semantic processing from both a linguistic and an algorithmic perspective are considered. The focus is on modern quantitative techniques in NLP: using large corpora, statistical models for acquisition, disambiguation, and parsing. Also, it examines and constructs representative systems.
Modeling language at the syntactic or semantic level is a key problem in natural language processing, and involves a challenging set of structured prediction problems. In this talk I'll describe work on machine learning approaches for syntax and semantics, with a particular focus on lexicalized grammar formalisms such as dependency grammars, tree adjoining grammars, and categorial grammars. I'll address key issues in the following areas: 1) the design of learning algorithms for structured linguistic data;
