An Efficient Statistical Speech Act Type Tagging System for Speech …

This paper describes a new efficient speech act type tagging system. This system covers the tasks of (1) segmenting a turn into the optimal number of speech act units (SA units), and (2) assigning a speech act type tag (SA tag) to each SA unit. Our method is based on a theoretically clear statistical model that integrates linguistic, acoustic and situational information. We report tagging experiments on Japanese and English dialogue corpora manually labeled with SA tags. We then discuss the performance difference between the two languages. We also report on some translation experiments on positive response expressions using SA tags. Click here to read more…

Business Opportunity: Founded in 1985, Discovery Communications (Discovery) ran a highly decentralized IT operation split among sites in the United Kingdom, Europe, and the United States during its first few years of operation. Discovery needed to build a more centralized international infrastructure that would serve multiple regions more reliably and cost-effectively and since its primary market at that time was in the United Kingdom, it made sense to locate it there…

Case Study on Autodesk

Autodesk, Inc., one of the world’s leading 2D and 3D design software companies, creates tens of thousands of pages of product documentation and help for its users every year. Because Autodesk operates internationally with users in more than 106 countries, its software and the associated content needs to be localized into as many as 18 languages.






Such localization has proven to be a time-consuming, highly manual, and costly process, yet it grows in importance each year as the company and its global user base continue to grow. The documentation and localization teams at Autodesk have long been interested in the adoption of a new system that would improve on the management of the authoring and localization functions. In 2003, the company formed a cross-functional team to evaluate potential systems, and recommend a new system and processes and tools for implementing the system.

Case Study of Olympus Pacific Minerals Inc

When international goldmine operator Olympus Pacific Minerals Inc. turned to Abel® they wanted to operate simultaneously in multiple languages and currencies and dramatically simplify complex reporting requirements. Goldmining usually means parched African deserts or maybe a remote Australian town. Producing over US$130 million of ore annually, Olympus Pacific Minerals Inc. is focussed on two main mining and production sites in Vietnam and runs all its management functions from several locations including Toronto, Vietnam and Auckland.






That this is even possible today is of course, thanks to the internet and modern communications including a new video conferencing facility. The fact that it is now easy, and highly efficient, says Jane Bell, the company’s Chief Financial Officer, is largely due to running their approvals management and financial systems through Abel.
