23.09. Hans Uszkoreit - Big Data and Text Analytics

Table of Contents

    Abstract - Deutsch

    Das Gebiet der Textanalytik wird mit einer rapide anwachsenden Menge an Texten konfrontiert. In seinem Vortrag argumentiert Hans Uszkoreit, dass Big Data im Bereich Sprachverarbeitung nicht nur als eine große Herausforderung aufzufassen ist, sondern als Chance, im großen Maße Wissen in Form von 'Smart Data' zu extrahieren. Unter den vielseitigen Verwendungszwecken von Smart Data finden sich neue Anwendungen der Wissensextraktion aber auch Verbesserungen von domänenspezifischen Sprachmodellen. Es gehört zu den Herausforderungen unserer Zeit, adäquat mit unserer Hinterlassenschaft umzugehen: der unüberschaubaren Masse an Text im World Wide Web. Durch die Kombination von skalierbaren statistischen Modellen mit intelligenten regelbasierten Systemen eröffnet sich die vielversprechende Perspektive, einen fein-granularen, vielseitig einsetzbaren, translingualen "Wissensgraphen" zu produzieren, der ein weites Spektrum an Anwendungen bedient. Hans Uszkoreit wird bestehende neue Anwendungen vorstellen und mit einem Ausblick auf die Möglichkeiten schließen, die sich durch Big "Smart" Data ergeben. Invited talk: Big Data and Text Analytics

    Abstract - English

    Text analytics is faced with rapidly increasing volumes of language data. In his talk, Hans Uszkoreit will show that big language data are not only a challenge for language technology but also an opportunity for obtaining application-specific language models that can cope with the long tail of linguistic creativity. It is the challenge of our time to deal with our legacy: the immense amount of text published on the ever-growing World Wide Web. Combining scalable statistical models with "smart" rule-based approaches opens up a promising perspective on the possibility of creating a fine-granular, versatile-useful, provenance-aware, translingual knowledge graph with a range of applications. Hans Uszkoreit will explain existing applications and give an outlook on what we can expect from big "smart" data.
