Comparison of Alignment Templates and Maximum Entropy Models for Natural Language Understanding

Abstract

In this paper we compare two approaches to natural language understanding (NLU). The first approach is derived from the field of statistical machine translation (MT), whereas the other uses the maximum entropy (ME) framework. Starting with an annotated corpus, we describe the problem of NLU as a translation from a source sentence to a formal language target… (More)
