Semantic parsing is the task of translating the meaning of real utterances into a formal representation which is understandable by a machine. This is instrumental to various real-life applications such as visual question answering. Multiple semantic representations have been presented throughout the years. These have some major differences such as their relation to syntax, their visual form or their degree of universality. In my research, I try to understand which semantic formalism seems to be better suited for parsing utterances from different languages for several applications. More technically, the final goal is the implementation of a new conceptual-semantic framework that could be integrated into a semantic parser that combines rule-based approaches and deep techniques.
