Call for Participation
Introduction: Topic and Goal
The time is ripe for the AI community to set its sights on Machine Reading---the
automatic, unsupervised understanding of text. Over the last two decades or so, Natural Language
Processing (NLP) has developed powerful methods for low-level syntactic and semantic text processing
tasks such as parsing, semantic role labeling, and text categorization. Over the same period, the
fields of machine learning and probabilistic reasoning have yielded important breakthroughs as well.
It is now time to investigate how to leverage these advances to understand text.
