    1. Speech recognition with feedback from natural language processing for adaptation of acoustic models

      A speech recognition unit performs speech recognition on input speech based on models, such as HMMs, and supplies a speech recognition result to a dialog management unit. The dialog management unit forms a reply to the speech recognition result. In this case, the dialog management unit detects zones in which the speech recognition result is correct based on the speech recognition result and the associated reply, and feeds them back to the speech recognition unit. Then, the speech recognition unit performs on-line adaptation of the models based on the speech of the correct zones fed back from the dialog management ...

    6. Automated natural language processing

      An automated natural language translation system takes source natural language text (preferably in Japanese) and translates them into a target natural language (preferably English). The system also allows an operator to re-translate automatically selected portions of the source text. The system includes an improvement directed to transforming kanas in the source text into alphabetic letters of the target language which allows the presence of a word or phrase boundary to be recognized in the middle of a kana. The system also includes an improvement involving performing concurrently on the source text both a morphological analysis and a syntactic analysis.

    7. Linguistic disambiguation system and method using string-based pattern training to learn to resolve ambiguity sites

      A linguistic disambiguation system and method creates a knowledge base by training on patterns in strings that contain ambiguity sites. The string patterns are described by a set of reduced regular expressions (RREs) or very reduced regular expressions (VRREs). The knowledge base utilizes the RREs or VRREs to resolve ambiguity based upon the strings in which the ambiguity occurs. The system is trained on a training set, such as a properly labeled corpus. Once trained, the system may then apply the knowledge base to raw input strings that contain ambiguity sites. The system uses the RRE- and VRRE-based knowledge base ...

    8. Parameterized word segmentation of unsegmented text

      The present invention segments a non-segmented input text. The input text is received and segmented based on parameter values associated with parameterized word formation rules. In one illustrative embodiment, the input text is processed into a form which includes parameter indications, but which preserves the word-internal structure of the input text. Thus, the parameter values can be changed without entirely re-processing the input text.

    9. Integrated and authoring and translation system

      The present invention is a system of integrated, computer-based processes for monolingual information development and multilingual translation. An interactive text editor enforces lexical and grammatical constraints on a natural language subset used by the authors to create their text, which they help disambiguate to ensure translatability. The resulting translatable source language text undergoes machine translation into any one of a set of target languages, without the translated text requiring any postediting.

    10. Method and system for detecting frequent association patterns

      A text-mining system and method automatically extracts useful information from a large set of tree-structured data by generating successive sets of candidate tree-structured association patterns for comparison with the tree-structured data. The number of times is counted that each of the candidate association patterns matches with a tree in the set of tree-structured data in order to determine which of the candidate association patterns frequently matches with a tree in the data set. Each successive set of candidate association patterns is generated from the frequent association patterns determined from the previous set of candidate association patterns.

    13. Translating apparatus, dictionary search apparatus, and translating method

      If a context process range extending unit cannot obtain context information required by a context processing unit, from a range to be translated, it extends the context process range. Then, the context processing unit performs a context process, and passes extracted context information to a translation processing unit in order to perform translation, based on the extended context process range.

    16. Multilingual electronic transfer dictionary containing topical codes and method of use

      A multilingual electronic transfer dictionary provides for automatic topic disambiguation by including one or more topic codes in definitions contained the dictionary. Automatic topic disambiguation is accomplished by determining the frequencies of topic codes within a block of text. Dictionary entries having more frequently occurring topic codes are preferentially selected over those having less frequently occurring topic codes. When the topic codes are members of a hierarchical topical coding system, such as the International Patent Classification system, an iterative method can be used with starts with a coarser level of the coding system and is repeated at finer levels until ...
