IR workshop @ AM-CP

has hosted another talk of mine. This time I have brought in more details on natural language functional theory and computer semantics. The audience has been rather wide as well: 10-15 people. After diving into computer semantics we've turned to Machine Translation topic, briefly covering statistical and classical approaches. It has been also important to see how the students follow the talk as well as keep them laughing from time to time to break the ice wall.

For those of you, who silently keep track of what's going on, my following message: I have made a conference talk last week at CPS'09 (Control Processes and Stability). The talk is in Russian. In brief: the article proposes an automatic method for creating a semantic translational dictionary ru->en. The method is based on statistical approaches and implemented with the use of GIZA++. Comparison of an experimental machine translation system based on the dictionary with the SMT system based on Moses is provided.
