Natural language processing systems are difficult to build, and machine learning methods can help automate their construction significantly. Our research in learning for natural language has mainly involved applying statistical relational learning, inductive logic programming, explanation-based learning, and other learning techniques to automatically construct semantic parsers (e.g. database interfaces) and information extraction systems from training examples. However, we have also conducted research in learning for syntactic parsing, machine translation, language generation, word-sense disambiguation, morphology (past tense generation), and schema-based narrative understanding. Our on-going work is focussed on learning to connect language and perception.
