Title. Natural Language Data Management and Interfaces
The volume of natural language text data has been rapidly increasing over the past two decades, due to factors such as the growth of the Web, the low cost associated with publishing, and the progress on the digitization of printed texts. This growth combined with the proliferation of natural language systems for search and retrieving information provides tremendous opportunities for studying some of the areas where database systems and natural language processing systems overlap.
In this talk, we will explores two interrelated and important areas of overlap: (1) managing natural language data and (2) building natural language interfaces to databases. We will recent progress in these areas with more focus on our own work.
