Dependency Analysis and CBR to Bridge the Generation Gap in Template-Based NLG
The present paper describes how dependency analysis can be used to automatically extract from a corpus a set of cases - and an accompanying vocabulary - which enable a template-based generator to achieve reasonable coverage over conceptual messages beyond the explicit scope of the templates defined in it. Details are provided on the actual process of partial automation that has been applied to obtain the case base, together with the various ingredients of the template-based generator, which applies case-based reasoning techniques. This module resorts to the taxonomy of concepts in WordNet to compute similarity between concepts involved in the texts. A case retrieval net is used as a memory model. The set of data to be converted into text acts as a query to the system. The process of solving a given query may involve several retrieval processes - to obtain a set of cases that together constitute a good solution for transcribing the data in the query as text messages - and a process of ...
