A visitor recently asked me what NLG research topics I found most interesting and exciting. Great question, I’ve written here an expanded version of what I told him.
My response to Goldberg’s “adversarial review” of some research on using deep learning in NLG
I’m planning to do a systematic review of the validity of BLEU, and am very keen to get comments and suggestions on study design from others!
A short travelogue about a holiday cycling trip I did in May 2017 (nothing to do with NLG!)
I’m looking for a PhD student to work on Advanced Data Storytelling!
Some explanation and advice about regression to mean, which is a statistical phenomena that can impact NLG evaluations.
People who use corpora to build NLG systems need to understand what is in the corpora. The widely used Weathergov corpus, for example, probably contains computer-generated texts rather than human-written texts. So learning from it is essentially reverse-engineering a rule-based NLG system.
