    As communication becomes increasingly automated and transnational, the need for rapid, computer-aided speech translation grows. The Janus-II system uses paraphrasing and interactive error correction to boost performance. Janus-II operates on spontaneous conversational human dialogue in limited domains with vocabularies of 3,000 or more words. Current experiments involve 10,000 to 40,000 word vocab...

    Since the mid-1980s, the IEEE Computer Society's Computer Dictionary Project has served the society, the IEEE, and computer professionals throughout the world by producing glossaries of computer-related terminology. The project's working group has finished one glossary for each of 10 computer science areas: the mathematics of computing, computer applications, modeling and simulation, image process...

    SpeechActs is a prototype testbed for developing spoken natural language applications. In developing SpeechActs, our primary goal was to enable software developers without special expertise in speech or natural language to create effective conversational speech applications-that is, applications with which users can speak naturally, as if they were conversing with a personal assistant. We also wan... View full abstract»

    Visa International has teamed up with the three largest banks in the southeastern United States to offer stored-value cards to the four million visitors and residents expected to attend the Olympics in Atlanta. Stored-value cards (or cash cards) transfer stored, digital money from the card to merchants' special terminals. Although 350 million smart cards are in use around the world, few Americans ...

    Our SCREEN (Symbolic Connectionist Robust Enterprise for Natural Language) system analyzes real-world utterances and can be used for relatively large and complex tasks. SCREEN learns a robust flat syntax, semantics, and pragmatics representation. The system also deals with uncommon syntactic and semantic language irregularities. The system is able to produce many utterance hypotheses based on spok... View full abstract»

    To fully realise the promise of emerging high speed networks we need: high bandwidth applications; networking standards; and networking services based on those standards. Two service models are being pursued to support high speed multimedia applications: IETF (Internet Engineering Task Force) and ATM (asynchronous transfer mode). The authors compare these models. They then discusses the future act... View full abstract»

    Machine translation has been the dominant paradigm for automated multilingual document production. In this paradigm, a technical writer generates a source text, which is translated by the computer system into another language and then edited. One problem with machine translation, however, is that its output is typically constrained by the original text's style and language. Automatic language-gene... View full abstract»

    Reasoning too much in terms of the real world can actually be detrimental to software quality. What matters is not how closely we model today's reality but how extensible and reusable our software is, so it can be adapted to a new or changed reality. The paper considers how reusability and extensibility are object technology's central goals. Object technology is not about modeling the real world. ... View full abstract»

    Automatic text generators are at the heart of systems that provide users with information. The trick is getting the system to answer follow-up questions as naturally as possible. We have devised a direct manipulation interface that treats system-generated texts as structured objects that users can manipulate. With our interface, users select the portions of system-generated text that they don't un... View full abstract»

    The Internet revolution is now in full swing, and commercial interests abound. As with other maturing media technologies, the focus is moving from technology to content, as commercial vendors and developers try to use network technology to deliver media products for profit. This shift inevitably raises questions about how to protect ownership rights. Digital watermarking has been proposed as a way... View full abstract»

    Companies protect their intellectual property (IP) in a variety of ways. They can use copyrights, trademarks, patents or a combination. Each provides certain types of protection for certain types of IP under certain circumstances. The Mitel company put its command codes for its call controller in its copyrighted programming manual. Iqtel used these codes to be compatible. Iqtel was supported by th... View full abstract»

    As the global consumer continues to pour money into PC and Internet-based businesses, content providers are quickly falling behind in providing good programming. There are very few creative, interesting, or innovative Web pages on the Internet and even fewer clever uses of intranetworked computers. The paper considers how transaction costs for Internet purchases must come down View full abstract»
