Relationships in the Organization of Knowledge

INFORMATION SCIENCE & KNOWLEDGE MANAGEMENT Volume: 2

With a goal of improving retrieval in bibliographic environments, this
volume takes stock of what we know about relationships in the overall
bibliographic domain, with particular emphasis on relationships
between subjects, relationships among bibliographic entities, and
relationships between subject content and user needs. The volume
presents the current state of the art in examining the expression of
relationships in some of the best thesauri and classification schemes
in use throughout the world. It also looks to the future by providing
guidance for relational tasks now taking on greater significance, as
retrieval systems increasingly operate in automated modes and as
retrieval systems cross linguistic, cultural, and disciplinary
boundaries.


By bringing together in one place the perspectives of some of the most
prominent persons working in this arena, this volume should be of
interest to researchers from library and information science, as well
as computer science (artificial intelligence, knowledge
representation, information retrieval, natural language processing),
and to many practitioners, including: developers of thesauri and
classification schemes; developers of Web search engines and search
directories; indexers and subject cataloguers; and professional
searchers.

Message 2: Comp Ling: Robustness in Language and Speech Technology

Robustness in Language and Speech Technology
edited by
Jean-Claude Junqua
Speech Technology Laboratory, Santa Barbara, CA, USA
Gertjan van Noord
University of Groningen, The Netherlands

TEXT, SPEECH AND LANGUAGE TECHNOLOGY Volume: 17

In this book we address robustness issues at the speech recognition
and natural language parsing levels, with a focus on feature
extraction and noise robust recognition, adaptive systems, language
modeling, parsing, and natural language understanding. This book
attempts to give a clear overview of the main technologies used in
language and speech processing, along with an extensive bibliography
to enable topics of interest to be pursued further. It also brings
together speech and language technologies often considered separately.


Robustness in Language and Speech Technology serves as a valuable
reference and although not intended as a formal university textbook,
contains some material that can be used for a course at the graduate
or undergraduate level.
