Meaning-Equivalent Semantics for Understanding, Generation, Translation, and Evaluation

Daniel Marcu

University of Southern California, USA

We propose to use meaning-equivalent semantics as foundation for developing novel understanding, generation, translation, and evaluation algorithms. We discuss preliminary work that assesses the ability of people to create large-scale, meaning-equivalent representations and the utility of these representations for automatically estimating the quality of machine translation technology and human translators.
