MEANING : a roadmap to knowledge technologies
MetadataShow full item record
Knowledge Technologies need to extract knowledge from existing texts, which calls for advanced Human Language Technologies (HLT). Progress is being made in Natural Language Processing but there is still a long way towards Natural Language Understanding. An important step towards this goal is the development of technologies and resources that deal with concepts rather than words. The MEANING project argues that we need to solve two complementary and intermediate tasks to enable the next generation of intelligent open domain HLT application systems: Word Sense Disambiguation and large-scale enrichment of Lexical Knowledge Bases. Innovations in this area will lead to HLT with deeper understanding of texts, and immediate progress in real applications of Knowledge Technologies.
