Help us evaluate NLG systems by going on a virtual treasure hunt.

GIVE-2.5: NLG Challenge on Generating Instructions in Virtual Environments


Part of Generation Challenges 2011
Endorsed by SIGGEN and SIGSEM


Dear colleagues,

for the third time now, the GIVE Challenge has invited research teams
to develop systems that generate natural-language instructions to
assist users in solving a puzzle in a virtual 3D environment. This
year teams of undergraduate students, graduate students, and
researchers from six universities in five countries have built eight
systems, and you can now play with these systems over the Internet.

If you go to


one of the systems will be assigned to you. Follow the instructions it
produces for you, and see whether you can find the trophy. It
shouldn't take more than 10 minutes and you are contributing valuable
evaluation data. Play as many games as you like: there are 3 new game
worlds to explore.

If you could help us spread this invitation by passing it on to your
colleagues (not necessarily NLP experts), friends, and students, we
would be most grateful.
