Second NLG Challenge on Generating Instructions in Virtual Environments


Part of Generation Challenges 2010


Go to http://www.give-challenge.org,

interact with a natural language generation system,

and contribute evaluation data.


Dear colleagues,

the GIVE Challenge invites research teams to develop NLG systems that
generate natural-language instructions to assist users in solving a
puzzle in a virtual 3D environment. This year six teams of
undergraduate students, graduate students, and researchers from
universities in four countries have build seven systems, and you can
now play with these systems over the Internet.

Please go to


follow the instructions your friendly natural language generation
system is producing 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.

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.
