NIST is pleased to announce a new evaluation series aimed to advance human language technologies that provide rapid and effective response to emerging incidents where the language resources are very limited. This evaluation series is called Low Resource HLT Evaluation (LoReHLT). LoReHLT16 plans to offer three evaluation tasks: machine translation (MT), named entity recognition (NER), and situation frames (SF).
- Three evaluation tasks: MT, NER, and SF - Two training conditions: constrained (required) and unconstrained - Surprise language evaluation - Three evaluation checkpoints to gauge performance based on training resources given
Feb 19 - May 16: Registration period (deadline extended) Jun 2 - 8: Dry run period Jun 29: Encrypted evaluation data released Jul 6: Surprise language announced and evaluation begins Jul 13: Checkpoint 1 due Jul 20: Checkpoint 2 due Aug 3: Checkpoint 3 due Aug 28 – 29: Post evaluation workshop (Nashua, New Hampshire, US)
