@inProceedings{Dannélls-Dana2008-73692, title = {Generating Tailored Texts for Museum Exhibits}, abstract = {This paper reports work that aims to generate texts in multiple languages from ontologies following the Conceptual Reference Model (CRM) ISO standard for conceptual models of museums. The rationale of this work is to increase users’ knowledge and interest in the cultural heritage domain by allowing the user to select his preferable syntax presentation and influence the order of the generated information using generation techniques and Semantic Web technologies. We chose for study a small amount of logical relations represented in the ontology and wrote a grammar that is capable to describe them in natural language through user editing. We present the multilingual source authoring environment, which is built upon the grammatical framework (GF) formalism and show how it is utilized to generate multiple texts from the CRM domain ontology. The initial results comprise texts, which vary in syntax and content.}, booktitle = {Proceedings of the 6th edition of LREC 2008, Workshop on Language Technology for Cultural Heritage Data (LaTeCH), Marrakech, Morocco.}, author = {Dannélls, Dana}, year = {2008}, pages = {17--20}, } @inProceedings{Dannélls-Dana2008-73695, title = {A System Architecture for Conveying Historical Knowledge to Museum Visitors}, abstract = {One of the requirements posed by cultural organizations is how to accommodate cultural content of formal ontology object descriptions to different user needs.

Addressing this problem involves a careful examination of how the knowledge formalized in an ontology can be verbalized and realized.We have started to exploit the abilities of generating natural language texts from a Web Ontology Language (OWL) and to examine how the content of the ontology can be rendered in natural language texts that support reader and listener preferences. In this paper we present our line of research and exemplify some of the difficulties we encountered while attempting to generate fragments of texts from a domain specific ontology.}, booktitle = {Proceedings of the 18th European Conference on Artificial Intelligence (ECAI).
