Vl3.lab presentation

  1. 1. The VL3 Virtual Language Learning Laboratory
  2. 2. The Idea
  3. 3. What we know? <ul><li>Linguistic Theory </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Input and interaction are essential factors in SLA </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Computer Science </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Highly developed NLP technologies. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>L2 Pedagogy </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Communicative Competence </li></ul></ul></ul>
  4. 4. What does NLP mean? <ul><li>Field of Artificial Intelligence  manipulation of natural language by means of computational platforms. </li></ul><ul><li>Multiple areas of knowledge: </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>linguistic study of the structure of  language </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>logical models of reasoning and their application to language  modeling </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>psychological and neurological models of brain-related  linguistic capabilities </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>computational techniques </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>models for the  study and implementation of algorithms </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>cognitive sciences </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Etc. </li></ul></ul></ul>
  5. 5. NLP Research Areas <ul><li>   </li></ul><ul><li>Natural language understanding lexical and grammatical analysis, creating a logical or abstract representation of the meaning of the  input. </li></ul><ul><li>  Natural language generation creation or realization of a sentence  (grammatical and lexical generation) from the logical or abstract  representation of the meaning. </li></ul><ul><li>  Speech recognition analysis of the acoustic signal in order to access  the corresponding textual and / or semantic representation. </li></ul><ul><li>  Text to speech synthesis of the acoustic signal using the textual sentence as the input. </li></ul><ul><li>  Machine translation : tools for the automatic translation of a  given sentence or text between a given pair of languages. </li></ul><ul><li>  Dialogue systems creation of dialogue interaction models. </li></ul>
  6. 6. The VL3 <ul><li>Focus : Dialogue System Technology </li></ul><ul><li>Technological Platform : Sintagma (Natural Language Inc.) </li></ul><ul><li>Sintagma : allows for a complete, coherent and flexible treatment of natural language comprehension and dialogue management </li></ul>
  7. 7. So…?
  8. 8. The Process
  9. 9. Where we are at? <ul><li>Stage 1. </li></ul><ul><li>Review of literature </li></ul><ul><li>Textbook analysis </li></ul><ul><li>Questionnaires </li></ul><ul><li>And … </li></ul>
  10. 10. First Trial
  11. 11. First Trial
  12. 12. <ul><li>Stay tuned, </li></ul><ul><li>to be continued …. </li></ul>
