Researcher Anabela Barreiro talks about project eSPERTo @antena2


Researcher Anabela Barreiro  speaks at Antena 2 radio station in the program “Páginas de Português” about the project eSPERTo. The project aims to develop a paraphrasing system that recognizes and generates equivalent forms of expression, providing suggestions to say or write the same thing in other words. The usefulness of eSPERTo’s paraphrastic capabilities has already been explored in two other application scenarios, namely in a dialogue (question-answering) system to increase the linguistic knowledge of an intelligent virtual agent, and in a summarization tool. eSPERTo can also become an indispensable tool to achieve high quality machine translation.
