DEPFIX: AUTOMATIC POST-EDITING OF PHRASE-BASED MACHINE TRANSLATION OUTPUTS

Abstract: Depfix is a system for automatic post-editing of phrase-based English-to-Czech machine translation outputs, based on linguistic knowledge. We analyzed the types of errors that a typical machine translation system makes, and created a set of rules and a statistical component that correct some of the errors. We use a range of natural language processing tools to provide us with analyses of the input sentences. Moreover, we reimplemented the dependency parser and adapted it in several ways to parsing of statistical machine translation outputs. We performed both automatic and manual evaluations which confirmed that our system improves the quality of the translations.

MUSIC AND COMPUTATIONAL LINGUISTICS

Abstract: Thoughts about similarity of music and natural languages are probably as old as the human thinking itself. The last century brought also musicological theories based on linguistic theories. Moreover, algorithms which are used for symbolic processing of music are often inspired by algorithms from computational linguistics or at least similar to them. The talk will start with a brief introduction to the relation of music and natural language. A description of few experiments with a corpus of melodies and automatic melody recognition I did in my master thesis will follow.
