A Shallow Formalism for Defining Personalized Text
1 Workshop Professionelle Erstellung von Papier- und Online-Dokumenten: Perspektiven für die automatische Textgenerierung. 22nd Annual German Conference on Artificial Intelligence (KI '98), 15.-17. September, o.A., Bremen, Germany, 1998
In this workshop note, we sketch techniques suited to generate personalized text within the shallow verbalization system TG/2. In a grammar-engineering phase, alternative formulations of messages corresponding to different user types are encoded into the generation grammar. A set of parameters denoting properties of verbalization alternatives is associated with the respective grammar rules. The user provides to the system the parameter values she desires. During generation, the rules matching the criteria best are preferred, leading to personalized text.
