AI-generated poetry for World Poetry Day 2019

What happens when artificial intelligence is challenged to write poetry? Recently, a team of creatives, developers and robotics specialists looked to the work of Sylvia Plath to find out.Bristol-based business Tiny Giant teamed up with Sharpshooter to train a recurrent neural network — a type of machine learning algorithm — on the poems of Sylvia Plath. They then joined forces with robotics experts, The Handwriting Company, to bring them to life.The machine-learning model generated hundreds of lines of Plath-inspired verse, which the team’s writers crafted into five unique poems. These were taken to The Handwriting Company…

A free encyclopedia of linguistics modeled on Wikipedia

URLGlottopedia is a freely editable encyclopedia for linguists by linguists that is currently being built up. It will contain dictionary articles on all technical terms of linguistics and is multilingual. In addition, there are survey articles, biographical articles and language articles, potentially on all linguists and all languages. Glottopedia articles also exist in German, Spanish, Italian, French, Russian, Danish, Swedish, Chinese, Japanese, Norwegian (Nynorsk), and in the future hopefully also in many other languages.

Dialog system

A dialog system or conversational agent (CA) is a computer system intended to converse with a human, with a coherent structure. Dialog systems have employed text, speech, graphics, haptics, gestures and other modes for communication on both the input and output channel. What does and does not constitute a dialog system may be debatable. The typical GUI wizard does engage in some sort of dialog, but it includes very few of the common dialog system components, and dialog state is trivial. Components[ There are many different architectures for dialog systems. What sets of components are included in…

What is computational linguistics?

Computational linguistics is the scientific study of language from a computational perspective. Computational linguists are interested in providing computational models of various kinds of linguistic phenomena. These models may be “knowledge-based” (“hand-crafted”) or “data-driven” (“statistical” or “empirical”). Work in computational linguistics is in some cases motivated from a scientific perspective in that one is trying to provide a computational explanation for a particular linguistic or psycholinguistic phenomenon; and in other cases the motivation may be more purely technological in that one wants to provide a working component of a speech…

Human Speechome Project

The Human Speechome Project, (speechome to rhyme with “genome”), is an effort to closely observe and model the language acquisition of a child over the first three years of life. The project was conducted at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology‘s Media Laboratory by the Associate Professor Deb Roy[1] with an array of technology that is used to comprehensively but unobtrusively observe a single child – Roy’s own son[2] – with the resulting data being used to create computational models to yield further insight into language acquisition.[3] Detail Most studies of…
