Trends in Parsing Technology

by Harry Bunt Joakim Nivre Paola Merlo

Computer parsing technology, which breaks down complex linguistic structures into their constituent parts, is a key research area in the automatic processing of human language. This volume is a collection of contributions from leading researchers in the field of natural language processing technology, each of whom detail their recent work which includes new techniques as well as results. The book presents an overview of the state of the art in current research into parsing technologies, focusing on three important themes: dependency parsing, domain adaptation, and deep parsing. The technology, which has a variety of practical uses, is especially concerned with the methods, tools and software that can be used to parse automatically. Applications include extracting information from free text or speech, question answering, speech recognition and comprehension, recommender systems, machine translation, and automatic summarization. New developments in the area of parsing technology are thus widely applicable, and researchers and professionals from a number of fields will find the material here required reading. As well as the other four volumes on parsing technology in this series this book has a breadth of coverage that makes it suitable both as an overview of the field for graduate students, and as a reference for established researchers in computational linguistics, artificial intelligence, computer science, language engineering, information science, and cognitive science. It will also be of interest to designers, developers, and advanced users of natural language processing systems, including applications such as spoken dialogue, text mining, multimodal human-computer interaction, and semantic web technology.

Triadic Game Design

by Casper Harteveld

Many designers, policy makers, teachers, and other practitioners are beginning to understand the usefulness of using digital games beyond entertainment. Games have been developed for teaching, recruiting and to collect data to improve search engines. This book examines the fundamentals of designing any game with a serious purpose and provides a way of thinking on how to design one successfully. The reader will be introduced to a design philosophy called "Triadic Game Design."; a theory that all games involve three worlds: the worlds of Reality, Meaning, and Play. Each world is affiliated with aspects. A balance needs to be found within and between the three worlds. Such a balance is difficult to achieve, during the design many tensions will arise, forcing designers to make trade-offs. To deal with these tensions and to ensure that the right decisions are made to create a harmonic game, a frame of reference is needed. This is what Triadic Game Design offers.

What exactly will you find in this book? Well, how about I start by telling you what you won't find. In this book you're not going to find cheap blogging philosophy. You know, the kinds of tips and tricks people try to sell you even when they themselves have never had any blogging success. In this book you're not going to find a "Blogging 101" type of course on the technical details of how to start a blog. In today's world, blog creation platforms are so intuitive and easy to use that it wouldn't even be worth your time to read a book like that. So if that's the kind of thing you're looking for, I'd recommend you check out one of the many "How to create a blog" tutorials that you can find on YouTube, among other places. Another thing you won't find in this book is a magic formula for "how to become a blogging millionaire in two weeks." Believe me, if anyone offers you anything that sounds like that, run away...immediately. What you will find in this book is a short summary of what I've written in my personal blog (El Último Blog) over the last ten years. In these ten years I have not only maintained my own personal blog, but I have also directed a blogging network with over 50 other writers, I've given conferences and taught classes on blogging, I've contributed to various book publications, etc. What I hope to share with you in this book, as a summary of these past ten years of blogging, is a selection of 15 articles which I believe reflect, in a clear and concise way, everything you'll need in order to write a winning blog. These articles will be just 15 out of the 2,000 plus articles that I have published over the years. I've taken the original versions and touched them up a bit, so that while the
