Linguistic Approaches to Artificial Intelligence


Ulrich Schmitz, Rüdiger Schütz and Andreas Kunz

Lately some important scientific innovations have come from dialogues and discussions between human sciences and the more technically oriented fields of research. This especially applies to the border area of linguistics and artificial intelligence research work. The book gives a representative insight into the state-of-the-art.
Still there are very few common ideas between linguistic interests and the challenges of artificial intelligence. Nevertheless numerous communications between linguistic, cognitive, psychological approaches and those of the computer sciences, as well as further single aspects come into sight.
The contributions deal with problems belonging to the fields of psycholinguistics, discourse analysis, text linguistics and semantics, semantic representation, knowledge representation and knowledge acquisition, unification theory and unification grammar, construction of parsers and grammar theory, natural language processing, speech analysis and text generating systems, machine translation and the differences between man-man and man-machine communication.
