I have recently written about current research in our group attempting to annotate textual resources with intentions. A preliminary report from a study that focused on annotating transcripts from speeches given by candidates of the 2008 presidential electionshave has recently been accepted at the Hypertext’09 conference as a 2-page poster.
The image above aims to give an impression of what we were trying to achieve, further details can be found in the conference proceedings:
M. Strohmaier, M. Kroell and C. Körner, Automatically Annotating Textual Resources with Human Intentions, Hypertext 2009, 20th ACM Conference on Hypertext and Hypermedia. Turino, Italy, 2009. Poster (download 2-page pdf)
We are currently working on an expanded version of it.
In related news, I’m also happy that one of Austria’s largest, nation-wide newspapers – DerStandard – has covered aspects of my research in their “Science” section.
