Task-Driven Linguistic Analysis based on an Underspecified Features Representation
Stasinos Konstantopoulos | Valia Kordoni | Nicola Cancedda | Vangelis Karkaletsis | Dietrich Klakow | Jean-Michel Renders
Proceedings of the Eighth International Conference on Language Resources and Evaluation (LREC'12)

In this paper we explore a task-driven approach to interfacing NLP components, where language processing is guided by the end-task that each application requires. The core idea is to generalize feature values into feature value distributions, representing under-specified feature values, and to fit linguistic pipelines with a back-channel of specification requests through which subsequent components can declare to preceding ones the importance of narrowing the value distribution of particular features that are critical for the current task.

A Dataset for Assessing Machine Translation Evaluation Metrics
Lucia Specia | Nicola Cancedda | Marc Dymetman
Proceedings of the Seventh International Conference on Language Resources and Evaluation (LREC'10)

We describe a dataset containing 16,000 translations produced by four machine translation systems and manually annotated for quality by professional translators. This dataset can be used in a range of tasks assessing machine translation evaluation metrics, from basic correlation analysis to training and test of machine learning-based metrics. By providing a standard dataset for such tasks, we hope to encourage the development of better MT evaluation metrics.
