  • Applied Text Generation: Auto-Text
    Auto-Text is a system for automatic generation of air polution reports. The project was founded by the Ministry of Environment and Traffic of the province Badenwürttemberg. The Auto-Text system was developted by Leo Wanner and Bernd Bohnet using an early release of the MATE system. Since 2001 the system is in summer from april to september online available. The system is hosted by the UMEG one of the project partners (AutoText via link Ozon-Kurzberichte).

  • Automatic semantic classifikation of collocations
    The goal of the Projekt with the title Acciones Integradas Hispano-Alemans 2003-D/0232983 was the automatic classifikation of Spanish collocations. The project was supported by the DAAD.

  • Applied Text Generation - Multimodal Air Quality Information Service for General Public: Marquis
    Marquis is a cross-border information service that provides user-tailored analysis, interpretation, and multilingual communication for meteorological and air quality information for selected regions in the EU. The project is part of eContent program of the EU and it lasts from 2005 until 2006. I have lead the work package Multimodal and Multilingual Information Generation.

  • Innovative Language Technology: IS²
    Currently, we start a company for Natural Language Processing which is support by the Technoloy Transfer Initiative of University of Stuttgart and the state of Baden-Württemberg.
