Natural Language Processing (NLP) group
The Idiap NLP group studies how semantic and discourse processing of texts and dialogues can improve statistical machine translation and information indexing, specifically multimedia retrieval and recommendation.
In statistical machine translation (SMT), we have shown that automatic labeling of discourse-level information (such as the senses of discourse connectives or the tense/aspects of verbs) can be combined with phrase-based SMT systems to improve their accuracy.
