Friday, May 8, 2009. BCL Technologies successfully completed AFRL Phase II deliverables toward title - Linguist Ambiguity, Training, and Rehearsal System.
In its Phase II SBIR efforts BCL Technologies developed a Linguist Ambiguity Training and Rehearsal System (LATARS) for Arabic, Korean, and Urdu to help train linguists to become experts in understanding the right meaning of an ambiguous word or phrase. The LATARS disambiguates polysemous text in these three languages and recommends correct meaning of an ambiguous word or phrase based on the context in which the word or phrase is used. The Arabic LATARS records an accuracy of 80% while the Korean and the Urdu LATARS record accuracies of 76% and 56% respectively.
