This book summarises Natural-Language Generation (NLG) from a system-building perspective. In other words, it will explain how advanced artificial intelligence techniques can be used to create software which automatically produces documents, explanations, and other kinds of texts.We hope the book will be of interest to students and researchers interested in NLG, and also to software developers working on advanced document-generation systems. It was published by Cambridge University Press in early 2000 as part of the Studies in Natural Language Processing series. Detailed contents and part of the introductory chapter can be downloaded from CUP (PDF).
