Third International Conference on Spoken Language Processing (ICSLP 94)
In this paper, we describe a system which integrates connectionist and symbolic approaches (SICSA) for spoken language understanding. This system combines two connectionist parsers with a rule-based parser. The design of SICSA emphasizes portability issues within the domain of database interrogation. In SICSA, the meaning of a sentence is translated into a pragmatic representation which usually has two components: the first specifies the types of informations that must be presented to the user; the other specifies the constraints. SICSA is currently applied to the ATIS (Air Travel Information System) task?. Keywords: connectionist network, parser, natural language understanding.
