Kai-Uwe Carstensen

I am one of the few who believe, and for 25 years now say, that computerlinguistjk attention plays an important role in cognition, much more important than currently acknowledged. Besides these theoretical concerns, I have always had a great interest in the practical applications of computational linguistics language technology, or Sprachtechnologie in German.

Ideally, both lines of interest meet when understanding how language functions helps to make better applications. This, actually, seems to be corroborated be recent developments:. Think what you want, but try to think different. Interestingly, I added a component for sprachtfchnologie route descriptions to the system see the following figure. In addition to object aspects, it took into account relations between objectsthe qualitative designation of computerlinguitik, and aspects of gradation e.

GROBI thus presented an answer to some problems of the combinatorics of distance and relation expressions occurring at least in German compare also “a few metres behind the house” and?

The theoretical core of the thesis is that changes of spatial attention are necessary for the construction of conceptual spatial relationswhich has to be reflected in the semantics of corresponding spatial terms. Here you can find the computerlinguidtik written in German spfachtechnologie aspects of spatial attention see also the bibliography of the thesis. There are other researchers interested in the role of attention in cognition and on attentional semantics, some of which are listed on a website maintained by Giorgio Marchetti or go directly to his website of carsensen book Attention and Meaning.

The Attentional Basis of Meaning.

In this context, I worked as an official coordinator. What I did was some kind of ‘proof-of-concept’ implementation of discourse interpretation theories in the context of segmented underspecified discourse representation structures, including some use of constraint logic programming for solving temporal constraint problems.

The TIP approach has been successfully developed further at the University of Zurich as a corresponding learning platform CLab of the computational linguistics group, cf. SeptemberSiegen, Germany, – The goal is to develop a digital dialect atlasa web interface to the database that will dynamically generate different geo-referenced maps, e.

On that basis, an attention-based cognitivist semantics of linguistic expressions gradation expressions, Carstensen Paper ; locative prepositions, Carstensenin a Pdf of the whole book can be specified. A paper on the attention-based semantics of directional expressions is in preparation, here are the slides of the talk on that topic ‘Language and Perception’ conference in Bern, Switzerland, September Some have asked me why I use the term Cognitivist so prominently and often.


The answer has two parts. First, there is a certain general connection: Recently, I found a proposal from not written by me for a ‘Meaning and cognition’ research group on my hard drive. It suggests a non-specific interpretation: Spracthechnologie will be convenient to have a name for the general approach outlined above; we will refer to it as the ‘cognitivist’ approach, because we believe that the essential trait that most recent semantic theories have in common is that they share a broadly cognitivist outlook.

The term is merely to suggest a certain trend in semantic theory which we endorse, and which stands in marked contrast to the views underlying most philosophical approaches to semantics. Yet it is already connected to me, as one branch of relevant theories was cojputerlinguistik to as follows in which the publication of my dissertation thesis was still forthcoming my emphasis: The work of Bierwisch and his associates may be seen as part of these developments, too BierwischBierwisch and Lang The second part of the answer is that sinceI use this term non-generically to refer to my attentional approach to semantics and ontology, different aspects of which ssprachtechnologie addressed in my recent papers.

Accordingly, Cognitivism not only refers to a cognitive position, but more specifically to an alternative theoretical stance on ontology as opposed to, e.

I am also working on adapted logics that are based on cognitivist ontologies and usable for cognitivist semantics. If you’re interested, read the Draft of my paper about why we need a different predicate logic.

That means, I am working in the interdisciplinary field of linguistics, computational linguistics, artificial intelligence and psychology plus some more which constitutes cognitive science.

In other words, I am interested in how language relates to the world via cognitive representations and psychological processes. This, actually, seems to be corroborated be recent developments: Especially in times like these, I fully agree with the statement made in the recently published song “Den Revolver entsichern” of the Hamburgian band Kettcar: Oh lord, help me to keep my big mouth shut until I know what I am talking about.

Having made this clear, ;- here’s my recent essay on reviewing: Contact You can contact me via Email: Research Research interests The general fields of my interest are language oriented Cognitive Science and Computational Linguistics. Specific fields of interest: Spatial and temporal knowledge representation and processing Role of attention within cognitive systems and for language Language understanding and generation.


Linguistic text classification Cognitive, computational semantics Specific interests: Spatial object knowledge representation Spatial relations Micro Perspectivization Gradation sprachtechhologie Generation of complex discourse types e. Special interest in problem-based interactive learning applications Computer-aided summarization of texts Language technology, computeelinguistik general Quantification, compositionality, and underspecification Ontologies Currently, I am interested in Cognitivist attentional semantics.

Publications of Kai-Uwe Carstensen Here’s the list of publications as pdf. It is based on spatial conceptual object schemata sprachtechnologgie representations of qualitative spatial information. These object schemata are used in OSKAR to determine whether specific combinations of dimensional carstfnsen and object names can be conceptually interpreted for example, “high hill” and “deep valley” are meaningful expressions, while “deep hill” and “high valley” are not. The project investigated qualitative aspects of spatial representation and reasoning.

I was participating as a member of Christian Freksa’s co,puterlinguistik at the University of Hamburg. I used this poster in talks given – among others – in Athens, Hongkong, and Warschau. Have a look at the quite ambitious original project goal. Web-based problem-based teaching and tutoring of introductory Computational Linguistics courses In this project at the University of Zurich, we combined enhanced traditional, but electronic, lecture notes, Web-based computer aided learning and the idea of Problem-based learning to yield a new approach, TIP for ‘ T ext-centred concept for I ndividual learning featuring P roblem-based interactive learning applications’computerlinguistil at supporting introductory Computational Linguistics courses.

Theoretically, they are needed as a missing link between realist and conceptualist ontologies.

Practically, they are assumed to be relevant at least for language technology applications. Korpora und flache Sprachverarbeitung Corpora and shallow processing II: DeGruyter”, Linguistische Berichte There’s an English translation of the review.

I have learned a lot about reviewing over the years. To share this knowledge, I have compiled a set of rules for reviewing caution: Feel free to distribute! There’ll be more soon.
