Philip Kerr on Automated generation of vocabulary learning materials


To cut quite a long story short, we learnt fairly quickly that we simply couldn’t automate the generation of carrier sentences with sufficient consistency or reliability. As with some of the other examples discussed in this post, we were able to use the technology to help the writers in their work.
