 Bob Coyne presents: Word's Eye, Converting Simple English Into 3D Scenes

 3D graphics scenes are difficult to create, requiring users to learn and
 utilize a series of complex menus and often tedious direct manipulation
 techniques. WordsEye however, allows untrained users to spontaneously
 and interactively create 3D scenes by simply describing them. By giving
 up this level of detailed control, natural language offers an attractive
 method to quickly and easily create a wide variety of 3D scenes.

 WordsEye has been used by several thousand users on the web to create
 over 10,000 scenes and has been tested recently in a middle school
 summer program at HEAF (Harlem Education Activities Fund) as an aid to
 story understanding. WordsEye is written in Common Lisp and runs on
 Linux. The current work in WordsEye is funded by NSF IIS-0904361.

 Bob Coyne has worked at Symbolics Graphics Division, Nichimen Graphics,
 and AT&T Research and is currently pursuing a PhD in computational
 linguistics at Columbia University.
