Book Information


Title: Challenges in Natural Language Processing
Edited By: Ralph M. Weischedel
Series Title: Studies in Natural Language Processing

Although natural language processing has come far, the technology has not
achieved a major impact on society. Is this because of some fundamental
limitation that cannot be overcome? Or because there has not been enough
time to refine and apply theoretical work already done? Editors Madeleine
Bates and Ralph Weischedel believe it is neither; they feel that several
critical issues have never been adequately addressed in either theoretical
or applied work, and they have invited capable researchers in the field to
do that in Challenges in Natural Language Processing. This volume will be
of interest to researchers of computational linguistics in academic and
non-academic settings and to graduate students in computational
linguistics, artificial intelligence and linguistics.
