Dear colleagues, We are pleased to announce the availability of NaturalOWL. NaturalOWL is an open-source natural language generation engine written in Java. It produces English and Greek descriptions of individuals (e.g., items for sale or museum exhibits) and classes (e.g., types of exhibits) from OWL DL ontologies. The ontologies must have been annotated in RDF with suitable linguistic and user modeling information. NaturalOWL was developed in the Department of Informatics of the Athens University of Economics and Business in the Greek project XENIOS, and it is now being extended in the European project INDIGO. NaturalOWL is heavily based on ideas from the European project M-PIRO, which was in turn based on Edinburgh's ILEX system, but it provides native support for OWL DL and it can be used within the Protege ontology editor. The software can be downloaded from: http://www.aueb.gr/users/ion/software/NaturalOWL.tar.gz A short paper (from ENLG 2007) that describes NaturalOWL is also available: http://www.aueb.gr/users/ion/docs/naturalowl_enlg07.pdf More detailed documentation is available upon request. You can see NaturalOWL being used in Second Life in the following video, which accompanies our Museums and the Web 2008 paper (joint work with Jon Oberlander and Amy Isard): http://www.vimeo.com/801099 http://www.aueb.gr/users/ion/docs/mw2008_preprint.pdf NaturalOWL can also be used with the ELEON authoring tool and the Personalization Server of NCSR "Demokritos".
