Over the years, my research team has participated in various international benchmarking evaluations. Some achievements include:
First in HOO (Helping Our Own) 2012 shared task, on error detection and correction of determiners and prepositions: the best team among 14 participating teams, and the best system among 85 systems submitted to the shared task.
Second in HOO (Helping Our Own) 2011 pilot shared task, out of 6 participating teams.
In WMT 2011, our machine translation evaluation metric, TESLA-M, achieved the highest average system level correlation for translating English into 3 European languages (out of 15 metrics), and TESLA-F achieved the highest average system level correlation for translating into English (out of 12 metrics).
In WMT 2010, our machine translation evaluation metric, TESLA-M, achieved the highest average system level correlation on the WMT10 test set (out of 18 metrics) when translating from English into 4 European languages, and TESLA achieved the highest average system level correlation when translating into English (out of 28 metrics).
