The goal of the project is to improve the syntactic parser of the Golem robot. The parsing module takes its imput from the Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR), which produces a text line to be parsed. The output of the parser is a SitLog command which triggers an action in the robot.

Work plan


  1. Develop an evaluation testbed for the parser based on (Doostdar et al., 20907)[1].
  2. Train a machine learning model to generate DGC[2]


  1. Transform the DGC-based (Definite Clause Grammar) parser into a CCG (Combinatorial Categorial Grammar)[3] based parser


  1. Create an evaluation testbed for the
