  • Informatics Colloquium 22. 11. Punctuation Detection and Correction for Czech

    Informatics Colloquium 22. 11. 2016, 14:00 posluchárna D2 doc. PhDr. Karel Pala, CSc., RNDr. Vojtěch Kovář, Ph.D., FI MU Punctuation Detection and Correction for Czech Abstract: Punctuation detection belongs to important tasks in automatic checking of grammar, especially for the Czech language. However, it is one of the most difficult tasks as well, unlike e.g. correcting simple spelling errors. There are several automatic tools that partly solve the problem: Two commercial grammar checkers for Czech (which also try to correct other types of errors, but we will deal with their punctuation correction features only) and some academic projects, mainly focused on correcting punctuation. The lecture will introduce and thoroughly compare the available tools for this task, including our solution that outperforms the state-of-the-art tools in certain important aspects. We will discuss the accuracy results and the options for further development.
