MANY: Improving System Combination

Project leader: Loc Barrault

Goals:

  • Multi-lingual : MANY (based on TERp) works for english, we want to be able to combine other languages.
  • LowerCase combination : Lower case -> combination -> Upper case (based on majority vote on the Confusion networks)
  • Extends search space with additional language resources (like synonyms, paraphrases, etc...)
  • Select backbone with MBR (at the moment all system is considered as backbone, we want to be able to select at most N backbones)
  • Exploring all TERp shift which do not decrease TER cost (instead of only the best one) - this is done by BBN
