Physical Object Representation and Generalization: A Survey of Natural Language Processing Programs

Wasserman, Kenneth

This paper surveys a portion of the field of natural language processing. The main areas considered are those dealing with representation schemes, particularly work on physical object representation, and generalization processes driven by natural language understanding. Five programs serve as case studies for guiding the course of the paper. Within the framework of describing each of these programs, seven other programs, ideas and theories that are relevant to the program in focus are presented. Our current work which integrates representation and generalization is also discussed.
