Coreference Resolution Illinois has online & downloadable CR UNIVERSITY OF STANFORD integrated in the Stanford suite of NLP tools, StanfordCoreNLP.StanfordCoreNLP download link : Ling Pipe OpenNLP link : Natural Language Toolkit download link : BART (Beautiful Anaphora Resolution Toolkit.) download link : Guitar (A General Tool for Anaphora Resolution) download link : CR determines which words("mentions") refer to the same objects ("entities").
Named entity recognition Given a stream of text, determine which items in the text map to proper names, such as people or places, and what the type of each such name is (e.g. person, location, organization).

Ling Pipe OpenNLP link : MontyTagger link : Natural Language Toolkit open source Python modules, Windows, Mac OSX and Linux. link : GATE And many others in Given a sentence, determine the part of speech for each word. Many words, especially common ones, can serve as multiple parts of speech. For example, "book" can be a noun ("the book on the table") or verb ("to book a flight").
Semantic role labeling Illinois has online & downloadable SRL MontyTagger Link : ASSERT (Automatic Statistical SEmantic Role Tagger) Link : Downloadable, OS : RedHat Linux It is designed and implemented by Sameer S. Pradhan, with some initial contribution from Daniel Gildea at the University of Rochester.Sameer S. Pradhan Daniel Gildea ASSERT is trained to tag: i) PropBank arguments, ii) Thematic roles, and iii) Opinions, in plain text.PropBank SwiRL: The Semantic Role Labeler English constructed on top of full syntactic analysis of text using Eugene Charniak's parser. SwiRL trains one classifier for each argument label using a rich set of syntactic and semantic features. Link : CoNLL-2005 Shared Task: Semantic Role Labeling: Systems & Results Link :

Automatic Summarization Produce a readable summary of a chunk of text. Often used to provide summaries of text of a known type, such as articles in the financial section of a newspaper. Other Multi-document online text summarizer
Summarization Evaluation ROUGE (Recall-Oriented Understudy for Gisting Evaluation) Link : Downloadable, written in Perl. MEADeval: ( An Evaluation Framework for Extractive Summarization) Link: Downloadable, written in Perl
Machine Translation Stanford : Entailment-based MT evaluation Link : Downloadable (written in java) It is based on the Stanford RTE system, which performs inference between two short texts, determining if one is entailed by the other. We use this inference mechanism to predict the adequacy of MT system output at the segment level compared to a reference translation. EGYPT system System from 1999 JHU workshop.

Topic segmentation Given a chunk of text, separate it into segments each of which is devoted to a topic, and identify the topic of the segment. Stanford Link : Downloadable (written in java) English, Arabic, Chinese version 14.7MB, Features Import and manipulate text from cells in Excel and other spreadsheets. Train topic models (LDA and Labeled LDA) to create summaries of the text. Select parameters (such as the number of topics) via a data-driven process. Generate rich Excel-compatible outputs for tracking word usage across topics, time, and other groupings of data.
Word sense disambiguation WordNet::SenseRelate Link : Two different word sense disambiguation algorithms, WordNet-SenseRelate-AllWords :Assigns a sense to each word in a text. WordNet-SenseRelate-TargetWord : Assigns a sense to a given target word. WordNet-SenseRelate-WordToSet : A ssigns the meaning to a word that is most related to a given set of words. They carry out word sense disambiguation by measuring the semantic similarity between a word and its neighbors. In particular, a word is assigned the sense that is most related to its neighbors. GWSD is a system for unsupervised all-words graph-based word sense disambiguation Link : Many words have more than one meaning; we have to select the meaning which makes the most sense in context. For this problem, we are typically given a list of words and associated word senses, e.g. from a dictionary or from an online resource such as WordNet.

TEHRAN, July 18, 2011 (AFP) - Iran has taken "full control" of three camps of the Iranian Kurdish rebel PJAK movement inside neighbouring Iraq, a a commander of the elite Revolutionary Guards told the official IRNA news agency on Monday. "All the three camps on Iraqi soil that were backing the terrorist group have fallen under our control and we have full control of the area," said Colonel Delavar Ranjbarzadeh, who commands Revolutionary Guards in the northwestern Iran border town of Sardasht. He added that operations launched on Saturday inside Iraq were still continuing in other areas but he did not give more details. Ranjbarzadeh added that a member of the Revolutionary Guards was killed in the fighting and three others wounded and that "many anti-revolutionary and PJAK terrorist members were (also) killed.” On Sunday IRNA quoted an unnamed source in Sardasht as saying "five PJAK members were killed in the clashes.” "Among those killed, is the deputy head of Marvan camp," Ranjbarzadeh said. He described Marvan as the "main camp for the PJAK terrorist group", adding that 30 members of the group had been living there for the past four years. On Sunday a spokesman for the PJAK told AFP in Iraq that Iranian forces had suffered several casualties in the fighting near the Banjaween area of Iraq Kurdistan's Sulaimaniyah province. "Since midnight (2100 GMT Saturday), heavy battles have been ongoing between PJAK and the Iranian army, resulting in two killed and four wounded," said PJAK spokesman Sherzad Kamankar.. Last week a senior army official said Tehran "reserves the right" to attack the bases of the Party of Free Life of Kurdistan (PJAK), in Iraq's autonomous Kurdish region.. "We reserve the right to attack and destroy terrorist bases in border areas" near the autonomous Iraqi region of Kurdistan, the official was quoted as saying by IRNA on July 11. "The terrorists will not be allowed to take sanctuary in Iraq's territory and attack Iran with the support of America and the Zionist regime," the official said. "Action will be taken against these terrorists.” Iranian forces regularly shell border districts of Iraq's Kurdish region, targeting PJAK bases
