Description

Recent years have witnessed increased interest in data-driven methods for text rewriting, e.g., the problem of reformulating a query to alternative queries, a document in a simpler style, or a sentence in more concise manner. In this talk I will focus on text simplification, one of the oldest and best-studied rewriting problems. The popularity of the simplification task stems from its potential relevance to various applications. Examples include the development of reading aids for people with aphasia, non-native speakers and more generally individuals with low literacy. A simplification component could be also used as a preprocessing step to improve the performance of parsers, summarizers and semantic role labelers.
