Semantic Parsing for Human Reason and Understanding

Today's CSIG talk:

Lenhart Schubert from the University of Rochester, presented "From Semantic Parsing to Reasoning."   ...   Slides here. 

This presentation is quite technical, but also gives an excellent non technical introduction to the current state of the art and continued deep challenges in knowledge based text understanding.    Points  to some excellent examples of work underway and tools like KNext and WordNet.  We used these for some consumer engagement applications, without attempting to solve the very deep underlying problem.

    ... sign up for making a presentation by sending a note to (fodell@us.ibm.com).   The format for these calls is 20-25 minutes by the presenter on work he/she is doing in Cognitive Computing or Cognitive Systems, followed by 5-10 minutes of questions and answers.   A link to slides (if used) and a recording of each call will be available on the CSIG website (http://cognitive-science.info/community/weekly-update/).
