|UNL:||Text Generation for WWW Applications|
The UNL project is projected by the Institute for Advanced Studies (IAS) of the United Nations University for a duration of 10 years. The development of the language specific components is carried out in close cooperation with international research institutes, universities, governments, and industrial partners all over the world. IAI Saarbrücken and DFKI GmbH are contracted for the development of the German language-technology components. Due to its comprehensive competence in the area of natural language generation (TAG-GEN, EFFENDI, VM-GEN), DFKI GmbH is developing the generation component, IAI realizes the analysis component. Together they develop a large coverage lexicon with 100,000 entries which maps German word stems to the concepts and roles of the Universal Networking Language. This lexicon will serve as a common knowledge base for the German generation as well as analysis.
