Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF071-041
Budget: 06/26/08 - 07/26/10

The Phase I project demonstrated the effectiveness of utilizing syntactic information and bilingual dictionaries to yield high quality translation systems in the Statistical Machine Translation (SMT) paradigm with limited bilingual corpus data for Chinese-English. Phase II extends this work with techniques that will enable similar success for mo...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF071-041
Budget: 04/04/07 - 02/04/08

We propose to build on recent work that introduces syntactic processing into statistical machine translation models, to develop algorithms and techniques that will create improved performance levels with a given amount of training data, and reduce the amount of training data required to achieve a given performance level. Projected advances will ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A03-088
Budget: 12/02/03 - 06/01/04

Recent DARPA-sponsored MT evaluations showed that phrase-based statistical MT systems derived through automatic training on very large corpora achieve the highest translation quality for both generalized and specialized texts. Intuitively, syntax, morphology, and semantics should help; however, rule-based systems that incorporate such knowledge ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2003
Budget: 01/01/03 - 12/31/03

The goal of this Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project is to bring radically new technology to the machine translation marketplace. While current systems are rule-based and difficult to extend, this company employs a statistical system that learns to translate by automatically analyzing large collections of previously transl...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of Southern California

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2002
Budget: 01/01/02 - 12/31/02

This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project concerns R&D aimed at assessing the feasibility of applying statistical Machine Translation (MT) techniques to the problem of improving the productivity of human translators. Currently, human translators use translation memory tools, i.e., software packages that provide access to dat...
