Bucking the Trend: Large-Scale Cost-Focused Active Learning for Statistical Machine Translation
(Association for Computational Linguistics, 2010-07)
We explore how to improve machine translation systems by adding more translation data in situations where we already have substantial resources. The main challenge is how to buck the trend of diminishing returns that is ...
Using Mechanical Turk to Build Machine Translation Evaluation Sets
(Association for Computational Linguistics, 2010-06)
Building machine translation (MT) test sets is a relatively expensive task. As MT becomes increasingly desired for more and more language pairs and more and more domains, it becomes necessary to build test sets for each ...
A Modality Lexicon and its use in Automatic Tagging
(European Language Resources Association, 2010-05)
This paper describes our resource-building results for an eight-week JHU Human Language Technology Center of Excellence Summer Camp for Applied Language Exploration (SCALE-2009) on Semantically-Informed Machine Translation. ...
Hard-Boiled Anxiety in Hammett, Chandler, and Macdonald
Between 1946 and 1976 Ross Macdonald produced eighteen Lew Archer novels, the heart of his achievement. The Archer series also extended the work begun by Dashiell Hammett and Raymond Chandler. Together these three writers ...

Michael W. Carroll's presentation slides on copyright, scholarly communication, author rights, and Open Access. Carroll is a professor of law at American University, Washington College of Law.
Semantically-Informed Syntactic Machine Translation: A Tree-Grafting Approach
We describe a unified and coherent syntactic framework for supporting a semantically-informed syntactic approach to statistical machine translation. Semantically enriched syntactic tags assigned to the target-language ...
Respect and Security Sector Reform
Security Sector Reform is now widely recognized as a crucial part of any conflict intervention or post-conflict reconstruction project. Where security forces are unable or unwilling to provide the population with basic ...
Reducing the Threat of State-to-State Cyber Attack against Critical Infrastructure through International Norms and Agreements
The global proliferation of networked computer systems within the public and private sectors presents an increased opportunity for malicious cyber attacks to disrupt the daily functions of governments, national emergency ...
Does the Policy-Making Process Affect Farmer Compliance? A Three-State Case Study of Nutrient Management Regulations
A series of fishkills in 1997 in the Chesapeake Bay were linked to Pfiesteria piscicida, a rare toxic microorganism, and to nutrient pollution from agricultural sources. Manure from poultry production on the Delmarva ...
