A Workflow Description Language to Orchestrate Multi-Lingual Resources

Abstract

Texts aligned alongside their translation, or Parallel Corpora, are a very widely used resource in Computational Linguistics. Processing these resources, however, is a very intensive, time consuming task, which makes it a suitable case study for High Performance Computing (HPC).

HPC underwent several recent changes, with the evolution of Heterogeneous Platforms, where multiple devices with different architectures are able to share workload to increase performance.

Several frameworks/toolkits have been under development, in various fields, to aid the programmer in extracting more performance from these platforms. Either by dynamically scheduling the workload across the available resources or by exploring the opportunities for parallelism. However, there is no toolkit targeted at Computational Linguistics, more specifically, Parallel Corpora processing. Parallel Corpora processing can be a very time consuming task, and the field could definitely use a toolkit which aids the programmer in achieving not only better performance, but also a convenient and expressive way of specifying tasks and their dependencies.
