Semantic Knowledge Discovery, Organization and Use

The University of New York will host a symposium on Semantic Knowledge Discovery mid-November. The presentations will consist of invited talks by leaders (see below) in the field and partially of general submissions.

The focus of NLP research has been shifting towards semantic analysis from syntactic analysis. It has become evident that the methods employed for developing syntactic analyzers, i.e. supervised methods using small annotated corpora, are not the best methods for the semantic task. In order to handle semantics, we need large amounts of knowledge which may be best collected by semi/un-supervised methods from a huge unannotated corpus.
