Intelligent Semantic Query of Notices to Airmen (NOTAMs)( Book )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The goal of this project was to develop computer technology to make NOTAM information available to Air Mobility Command (AMC) flight personnel (flight planners, managers and pilots), in a more timely and effective way. NOTAMs are notices containing information on the conditions, or changes to, aeronautical facilities, services, procedures, or hazards, which are essential information for flight operations. This project was part of the AFRL/IF Integrated Flight Management (IFM) Advanced Technology Demonstration (ATD), whose goals were to "advance the search, retrieval, handling, use and dissemination of raw resource data & required by Air Mobility Command (AMC) as it pertains to their mission planning and the optimal use of available mobility resources." To automate the search, retrieval, and dissemination of NOTAMs, it is essential that the critical parts of the information content of NOTAMs be made understandable to computers. There are two components to this, parsing which extracts key information from NOTAM free text and representation which provides formal display of the extracted NOTAM content. This work developed a new parsing system and innovative displays to address the needs of Mobility flight planners. Though originally developed strictly for AMC, this work has been successfully transitioned beyond just AF and DOD applications
The Delphi Natural Language Understanding System( Book )

2 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper presents Delphi, the natural language component of the BBN Spoken Language System. Delphi is a domain- independent natural language question answering system that is solidly based on linguistic principles, yet which is also robust to ungrammatical input. It includes a domain-independent, broad-coverage grammar of English. Analysis components include an agenda-based best-first parser and a fallback component for partial understanding that works by fragment combination. Delphi has been formally evaluated in the ARPA Spoken Language program's ATIS (Airline Travel Information System) domain, and has performed well. Delphi has also been ported to a spoken language demonstration system in an Air Force Resource Management domain. We discuss results of the evaluation as well as the porting process
BBN BYBLOS and HARC February 1992 ATIS Benchmark Results( Book )

2 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We present results from the February '92 evaluation on the ATIS travel planning domain for HARC, the BBN spoken language system (SLS). In addition, we discuss in detail the individual performance of BYBLOS, the speech recognition (SPREC) component. In the official Scoring, conducted by NIST, BBN's HARC system produced a weighted SLS score of 43.7 on all 687 evaluable utterances in the test set. This was the lowest error achieved by any of the 7 systems evaluated. For the SPREC evaluation BBN's BYBLOS system achieved a word error rate of 6.2% on the same 687 utterances and 9.4% on the entire test set of 971 utterances. These results were significantly better than any other speech system evaluated
BBN: Description of the PLUM System as Used for MUC-6( Book )

2 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper provides a quick summary of our technical approach, which has been developing since 1991 and was first fielded in MUC-3. First a quick review of what is new is provided, then a walk through of system components. Perhaps most interesting is out analysis, following the walk through, of what we learned through MUC-6 and of what directions we would take now to break the performance barriers of current information extraction technology
Research and Development in Natural Language Understanding as Part of the Strategic Computing Program. Volume 3. A Guide to IRUS-II Application Development. Revision( Book )

1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

IRUS-II is the understanding subsystem of the Janus natural language interface. IRUS-II is natural language understanding (NLU) shell. That is, it contains domain-independent algorithms, a large grammar of English, domain-independent semantic interpretation rules, and a domain-independent discourse component. In addition, several software aids are provided to customize the system to particular application domains. These software aids output the four knowledge bases necessary for IRUS-II to correctly interpret English utterances and generate appropriate code for simultaneous access to multiple application systems. This document describes the four knowledge bases and how to construct them. This is the third volume of a three volume final report. (kr)
Adaptive natural language processing( Book )

1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

A handful of special purpose systems have been successfully deployed to extract prespecified kinds of data from text. The limitation to widespread deployment of such systems is their assumption of a large volume of handcrafted, domain-dependent, and language-dependent knowledge in the form of rules. A new approach is to add automatically trainable probabilistic language models to linguistically based analysis. This offers several potential advantages: (1) Trainability by finding patterns in a large corpus, rather than handcrafting such patterns. (2) Improvability be re-estimating probabilities based on a user marking correct and incorrect output on a test set. (3) More accurate selection among interpretations when more than one is produced. (4) Robustness by finding the most likely partial interpretation when no complete interpretation can be found
Research and Development in Natural Language Understanding as Part of the Strategic Computing Program. Volume 1. Overview of Technical Results. Revision( Book )

1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This is volume one of a three volume final report. This volume, Volume 1, provides a technical overview of the effort. Chapter 1 is the Executive Summary. Chapter 2 overviews the effort as a whole reporting on (1) Our Integration of software and results from other Strategic Computing contractors, (2) Our participation in Fleet Command Center Battle Management Program, (3) Distribution of the resulting software to other sites, and efforts, and (4) Contributions of the work to the state of the art. The problem of acquiring linguistic knowledge is the chief obstacle to widespread use of natural language technology. Chapters 3 and 6 report results of five to tenfold increase in our productivity in moving the natural language shells to new application domains. The ability of natural language systems to cooperatively handle novel, errorful, or incomplete forms is also critical; chapters 5 and 7 report new techniques to intelligently and gracefully respond to such forms. Chapter 4 reports on an implementation of a discourse module for understanding definite reference. (Author) (kr)
INTERLISP Performance Measurements( Book )

Research and Development in Natural Language Understanding as Part of the Strategic Computing Program( Book )

1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This report includes a collection of reprints reporting natural language research. The problem of acquiring linguistic knowledge is the chief obstacle to widespread use of natural language technology. Chapter 1 and 4 report results of five to tenfold increase in our productivity in moving the Janus and Parlance natural language shells to new application domains. The ability of natural language systems to cooperatively handle novel, errorful, or incomplete forms is also critical; chapter 3 and 5 report new techniques for intelligently and graceful respond to such forms. Chapter 2 reports on an implementation of a discourse module for understanding definite reference. (KR)
