Language Resources at your fingertips

image
Worldwide, people are increasingly gaining access to electronic devices in a growing variety of languages. South Africans can already use ATMs and spelling checkers in their mother tongues. For developments like these, language technology data and resources (such as electronic texts and word lists) are needed. The more data there is, the smarter the tool or machine will be, facilitating human-machine interaction through a particular language. For this reason, the Department of Arts and Culture (DAC) has established the National Centre for HLT (Human Language Technology) to develop reusable text and speech resources, and the Resource Management Agency (RMA) to manage and distribute these from one central point. The Centre for Text Technology (CTexT®) at the North-West University has been appointed to set up the RMA over the next three years.

    PSearch 1.1.

    R0.00

    PSearch is based on Paramsearch, a tool created by Antal van den Bosch for automatic algorithmic parameter optimisation for TiMBL and other machine learning algorithms. Paramsearch is available for download from http://ilk.uvt.nl/software/. PSearch works basically on the same principles as Paramsearch, with the major difference being the way that the sizes of the progressive training and evaluation data sets are generated. Another difference is that PSearch can utilise all of the TiMBL algorithms.
