Stochastic Unification-Based Grammars combine knowledge-rich and data-rich approaches to natural language processing. This provides a rich structure to the learning and parsing (decoding) tasks that can be described with undirected graphical models. While most work to date has treated parsing as a straight-forward multi-class classification problem, we are beginning to see how this structure can be exploited in learning and parsing. Exploiting this structure is likely to become more important as the research focus moves from parsing to more realistic tasks such as machine translation and summarization.
