Promoting Interoperability of Resources in META-SHARE

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


META-NET is a Network of Excellence aiming to improve significantly on the number of language technologies that can assist European citizens, by enabling enhanced communication and cooperation across languages. A major outcome will be META- SHARE, a searchable network of repositories that collect resources such as language data, tools and related web services, covering a large number of European languages. These resources are intended to facilitate the development and evaluation of a wide range of new language processing applications and services. An important aim of META-SHARE is the promotion of interoperability amongst resources. In this paper, we describe our planned efforts to help to achieve this aim, through the adoption of the UIMA framework and the integration of the U-Compare system within the META-SHARE network. U- Compare facilitates the rapid construction and evaluation of NLP applications that make use of interoperable components, and, as such, can help to speed up the development of a new generation of European language technology applications.
