Title: Knowledge-Intensive Structural NLP in the Era of Big Data

Texts are the basis of human knowledge representation, including data analysis results and interpretation by experts, criticism and opinions, procedures and instructions. We have been working on the realization of knowledge-intensive structural NLP which can extract truly valuable knowledge for human beings from an ever growing volume of texts, known recently as Big Data. This talk introduces several of our on-going projects concerning knowledge-intensive structural NLP: synonymous expression, case frame and event relation acquisition from 15G parsed sentences, ellipsis resolution considering exophora and author/reader information, an open search engine infrastructure TSUBAKI, and an information analysis system WISDOM.
