XML and NLP: Their Interaction and their Role for HLT Applications

Thierry Declerck, P. Wittenburg

In: Proceedings of the 1st NLP and XML Workshop, November 30. NLP and XML Workshop 2001.


We describe in this paper the MUMIS Project (Multimedia Indexing and Searching Environment) and show the role linguistically motivated annotations, coupled with domain-specific information, can play for the indexing and the searching of multimedia (and multilingual) data. MUMIS develops and integrates base technologies, demonstrated within a laboratory prototype, to support automated multimedia indexing and to facilitate search and retrieval from multimedia databases. The project will demonstrate that innovative technology components can operate on multilingual, multisource, and multimodal information and create a meaningful and queryable database.
