  • Deepening wisdom or compromised principles?-the hybridization of statistical and symbolic MT systems

    Publication Year: 1996, Page(s):16 - 18
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (372 KB)

    Departing from your principles is hard. The frequency and volume with which the principles of statistical and symbolic MT were repeated during the Statistics Wars means impressive-sounding arguments will continue for a while. But it is perhaps more instructive to consider what happens in practice. Baldly stated, if you want to build a non-toy MT system-a system with more than approximately 5,000 l... View full abstract»

  • The inflexible fickleness of fashion

    Publication Year: 1996, Page(s):15 - 16
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (236 KB)

    One problem with the field of MT has been that the descriptive work is, frankly, rather monotonous and boring. This is why attempts were made either to make it less boring (by adding an independently motivated theoretical angle to the descriptive work), or to try to avoid it altogether. The latter objective manifested itself in attempts to use Al learning techniques or more practical semi-automati... View full abstract»

  • Statistical MT≠stone soup

    Publication Year: 1996, Page(s):14 - 15
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (228 KB)

    The statistical approach to machine translation is producing a set of useful terminology and reuse tools. Unlike traditional MT, these tools do not attempt to compete with the human at what the human does best (translating the easy vocabulary and the easy grammar), but complement the human in areas where they know they need help (difficult vocabulary and reuse) View full abstract»

  • AI and navigation on the Internet and Intranet

    Recent research has focused on using AI to harness the World Wide Web. Although intelligent agents are one of the most visible uses of AI on the WWW, substantial hype surrounds such usage. Oren Etzioni and Daniel Weld (1995) analyze the fact, fiction, and forecast of intelligent agents on the WWW and distinguish between the hype and the reality. The analysis summarizes some of the work discussed a... View full abstract»

  • SWI: making knowledge technology work

    Publication Year: 1996, Page(s):74 - 76
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (456 KB)

    A 15-year tradition of knowledge technology research and transfer has established a niche for SWI, the social science informatics department at the University of Amsterdam. The department distinguished itself through contributions in the development of the KADS and CommonKADS engineering methods for knowledge-based systems. CommonKADS, used in both research and commercial applications, is the most... View full abstract»

    A reinforcement learning system for machine-intelligence robots introduces a performance measure that balances an algorithm's reliability and computational cost. The system uses this measure to learn the best among a set of alternative tasks capable of executing a command communicated to the intelligent machine View full abstract»

  • Machine translation: a hybrid view

    Publication Year: 1996, Page(s):12 - 14
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (476 KB)

    MT works, in the sense that everyday MT systems produce fully automatic translations that many people use with apparent benefits. The failure of intellectual breakthroughs to produce high quality, fully automatic MT is also apparent. The author considers statistical and knowledge-based translation View full abstract»

  • From verification to life cycle support

    Publication Year: 1996, Page(s):67 - 73
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1380 KB)

    Effective knowledge-engineering support demands adequate methods for modeling and documenting knowledge-engineering practice. By treating verification as a metalevel operation, these authors work with meta- and object-level projects in a single environment. They use the ComMet componential methodology and KresT workbench to create an environment capable of full life cycle support for a knowledge-e... View full abstract»

    The Ralph vision system helps automobile drivers steer, by sampling an image, assessing the road curvature, and determining the lateral offset of the vehicle relative to the lane center. Ralph has performed well under extensive tests, including a coast-to-coast, 2,850-mile drive View full abstract»

    Adaptive networks can model the nonlinearities of complex systems and adapt on line to changes in these systems. To demonstrate this approach, the authors simulate the automated regulation of blood pressure. Such methods can improve patient care and save money View full abstract»
