Associating Automatic Natural Language Processing to Serious Games and Virtual Worlds

Treveur Bretaudière, Samuel Cruz-Lara, Lina María Rojas Barahona


We present our current research activities associating automatic natural language processing to serious games and virtual worlds. Several interesting scenarios have been developed: language learning, natural language generation, multilingual information, emotion detection, real-time translations, and non-intrusive access to linguistic information such as definitions or synonyms. 

Part of our work has contributed to the specification of the Multi Lingual Information Framework [ISO FDIS 24616], (MLIF,2011). Standardization will grant stability,  interoperability and sustainability of an important part of our research activities, in particular, in the framework of representing and managing multilingual textual information.
