Cache Transition Systems for Semantic Parsing

Abstract: We describe a transition system that generalizes standard transition-based dependency parsing techniques to generate a graph rather than a tree.  Our system includes a cache with fixed size m, and we characterize the relationship between the parameter m and the class of graphs that can be produced through the graph-theoretic concept of tree decomposition.  We train a sequence-to-sequence neural model based on this system to parse text into Abstract Meaning Representation (AMR).

Assisting Interpreters with Technical Terms

Abstract: To assist simultaneous interpreters with their work, one needs to find a balance between providing useful information and minimizing distraction. This talk will discuss a simple method for detecting and translating technical terms and a crowdsourced experiment to determine whether the method strikes the right balance for interpreter assistance--without actually using interpreters.
