Today's search engines build their indices on the basis of document mark-up in XML and significant letter sequences (words) occurring in the document texts. There are some drawbacks, however: the XML mark-up requires skill as well as tedious work from the user posting the document, and the indexing based on significant word distributions, though automatic and highly effective, is not as precise as required by many applications.
Professor Roland Hausser heads the Laboratory of Computational Linguistics at the Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg in Germany. He has worked in formal semantics, grammar algorithms, and human-computer communication. Publications include a series of books, the latest entitled 'A Computational Model of Natural Communication', as well as papers in TCS and AI.
