Raytheon BBN Technologies has been awarded $2.5 million worth of funding under the METAPHOR program, from the Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity (IARPA), via the US Army Research Laboratory (ARL).
Raytheon BBN, a wholly owned subsidiary of Raytheon Company, has a team goal of creating analysis tools and techniques that provide insight into the underlying beliefs and worldviews that metaphors reveal.
The system is designed to automatically find, identify and categorise linguistic metaphors in large amounts of foreign language text.
Prem Natarajan, head of speech and language processing for Raytheon BBN Technologies, said, "Awareness and understanding of metaphors will provide novel insight into underlying cultural beliefs."
"The ability to recognise and categorise these subtle and often unnoticed cultural metaphors in native-language text is an extremely difficult and multifaceted technology challenge."
The contract states that Raytheon BBN will develop tools and techniques to identify, qualify and categorise metaphors. Build a metaphor repository that identifies and links key elements of linguistic metaphors to the conceptual metaphor and develop a fully functional metaphorical language analysis system.
