In data-oriented language processing, an annotated language corpus is used as a stochastic grammar. The most probable analysis of a new sentence is constructed by combining fragments from the corpus in the most probable way. This approach has been successfully used for syntactic analysis, using corpora with syntactic annotations such as the Penn Tree-bank.(More)
The NWO Priority Programme Language and Speech Technology is a 5-year research programme aiming at the development of spoken language information systems. In the Programme, two alternative natural language processing (NLP) modules are developed in parallel: a grammarbased (conventional, rule-based) module and a data-oriented (memorybased, stochastic, DOP)(More)
Data oriented parsing systems employ redundant stochastic tree substitution grammars (STSGs) to analyse natural language utterances on the basis of an annotated corpus (a treebank). An important component of such systems is the way in which the substitution probability of a parse tree fragment is estimated from its occurrences in the treebank. In the(More)
Many practical information extraction systems use simple taxonomies for mapping extracted strings to client-specific concept codes. In such taxonomies, concepts are defined as groups of semantically similar words and phrases. For the mapping to be accurate, a new client-specific taxonomy – usually nothing more than a set of concept codes, each with a single(More)

The use of the stereotactic posterovental pallidotomy is a surgical option increasingly considered for the treatment of Parkinson's Disease. This treatment method requires a multidisciplinary team. The clinical nurse specialist is in the best position to coordinate this multidisciplinary effort to provide successful total patient care.
This paper describes a method for automatically learning effective dialogue strategies, generated from a library of dialogue content, using reinforcement learning from user feedback. This library includes greetings, social dialogue, chit-chat, jokes and relationship building, as well as the more usual clarification and verification components of dialogue.(More)
