Project description

The REST is a joint project of the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics, Charles 
University and the Institute of Czech Language, Czech Academy of Science.
The project focuses on fulltext information systems (containing both written 
and spoken materials) in Czech (when standard methods fail due to the different 
type of languages they have been developed for). The project aims to strengthen 
and improve current methods for morphological analysis of Czech, in order to 
attain higher precision in identifying lexical units and in some cases also 
their meaning. 
The project will use state-of-the-art statistical technology and machine 
learning based on linguistically annotated data. Within the project, such data 
will be prepared (at a fraction of the usual cost) by conversion of older 
resources, and tools will be created (based on the resulting larger corpus) 
that would have parameters needed for a successful application in end-user 
information systems.
Project durationJul 2004 - Dec 2008
