There is a rise of non-communicable diseases (NCDs) burden, which is causing increasing morbidity and premature mortality in developing countries. In 1990, cardiovascular diseases (CVD) accounted for 63 per cent of all deaths and India contributed to 17 per cent to the worldwide mortality. Several surveys conducted across the country over the past two(More)
We present a novel online learning approach for statistical machine translation tailored to the computer assisted translation scenario. With the introduction of a simple online feature, we are able to adapt the translation model on the fly to the corrections made by the translators. Additionally, we do online adaption of the feature weights with a large(More)
This paper presents our submissions to the shared translation task at WMT 2011. We created two largely independent systems for English-to-French and Haitian Creole-to-English translation to evaluate different features and components from our ongoing research on these language pairs. Key features of our systems include anaphora resolution, hierarchical(More)
We address a challenging problem frequently faced by MT service providers: creating a domain-specific system based on a purely source-monolingual sample of text from the domain. We solve this problem by introducing methods for domain adaptation requiring no in-domain parallel data. Our approach yields results comparable to state-of-the-art systems optimized(More)
Clustering of insulin resistance and dysmetabolism with obesity is attributed to pathologic adipose tissue. The morphologic hallmarks of this pathology are adipocye hypertrophy and heightened inflammation. However, it's underlying molecular mechanisms remains unknown. Study of gene function in metabolically active tissues like adipose tissue, skeletal(More)
Guenno B, et al. Molecular detection and characterization of yellow fever in blood and liver specimens of a non-vaccinated fatal human case. To the Editor: Members of the Bacteroides fragilis group are the most commonly isolated anaerobic pathogens in humans. Metronidazole has been the drug of choice for preventing and treating such infections for 40 years.(More)
This paper illustrates a way of using para-phrasal interpretation of English nominal compound for translating them into Hindi. Input Nominal compound is first paraphrased automatically with the 8 prepositions as proposed by Lauer (1995) for the task. English prepositions have one-to-one mapping to post-position in Hindi. The English paraphrases are then(More)
India is undergoing a demographic and epidemiological transition which is influencing its health. Noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) are posing major health and development threats, while we are grappling with communicable diseases and maternal and child health-related issues. The major NCDs include cardiovascular diseases (including stroke), diabetes, cancer,(More)
We describe effort to improve machine translation of item titles found in a large e-commerce inventory through topic modeling and adaptation. Item titles are short texts which typically contain brand names that do not have to be translated, and item attributes whose translation often depends on the context. Both issues call for robust methods to integrate(More)
In this paper we investigate the problem of adapting a machine translation system to the feedback provided by multiple post-editors. It is well know that translators might have very different post-editing styles and that this variability hinders the application of online learning methods, which indeed assume a homogeneous source of adaptation data. We hence(More)
