An article in Aberdeen University’s new magazine, Scientia (page 16-17), describes the use of Natural Language Generation (NLG) such as in our “How was School today…?” project. In the collaboration project between Aberdeen and Dundee we used an area of NLG, Data-to-text, to generate stories that could be used by children with complex disabilities to talk to their parents and peers about their experiences at school.

I'm a rehab engineer with special interest in AAC (Augmentative and Alternative Communication - communication techniques for people who have no natural speech and in many cases additional physical and/or learning disabilities). I am working at the University of Dundee but love working out-with the academic field. I have started a Lego Mindstorms Robotic Club at my local primary school and I am Public Engagement lead for Computing at the School of Science and Engineering. View all posts by Rolf
