Feature-Less End-to-End Nested Term Extraction

Aug 15, 2019
Yuze Gao, Yu Yuan

In this paper, we proposed a deep learning-based end-to-end method on the domain specified automatic term extraction (ATE), it considers possible term spans within a fixed length in the sentence and predicts them whether they can be conceptual terms. In comparison with current ATE methods, the model supports nested term extraction and does not crucially need extra (extracted) features. Results show that it can achieve high recall and a comparable precision on term extraction task with inputting segmented raw text.

JUMT at WMT2019 News Translation Task: A Hybrid approach to Machine Translation for Lithuanian to English

Aug 01, 2019
Sainik Kumar Mahata, Avishek Garain, Adityar Rayala, Dipankar Das, Sivaji Bandyopadhyay

In the current work, we present a description of the system submitted to WMT 2019 News Translation Shared task. The system was created to translate news text from Lithuanian to English. To accomplish the given task, our system used a Word Embedding based Neural Machine Translation model to post edit the outputs generated by a Statistical Machine Translation model. The current paper documents the architecture of our model, descriptions of the various modules and the results produced using the same. Our system garnered a BLEU score of 17.6.

Exploring difference in public perceptions on HPV vaccine between gender groups from Twitter using deep learning

Jul 06, 2019
Jingcheng Du, Chongliang Luo, Qiang Wei, Yong Chen, Cui Tao

In this study, we proposed a convolutional neural network model for gender prediction using English Twitter text as input. Ensemble of proposed model achieved an accuracy at 0.8237 on gender prediction and compared favorably with the state-of-the-art performance in a recent author profiling task. We further leveraged the trained models to predict the gender labels from an HPV vaccine related corpus and identified gender difference in public perceptions regarding HPV vaccine. The findings are largely consistent with previous survey-based studies.

Rewarding Smatch: Transition-Based AMR Parsing with Reinforcement Learning

May 31, 2019
Tahira Naseem, Abhishek Shah, Hui Wan, Radu Florian, Salim Roukos, Miguel Ballesteros

Our work involves enriching the Stack-LSTM transition-based AMR parser (Ballesteros and Al-Onaizan, 2017) by augmenting training with Policy Learning and rewarding the Smatch score of sampled graphs. In addition, we also combined several AMR-to-text alignments with an attention mechanism and we supplemented the parser with pre-processed concept identification, named entities and contextualized embeddings. We achieve a highly competitive performance that is comparable to the best published results. We show an in-depth study ablating each of the new components of the parser

M-GWAP: An Online and Multimodal Game With A Purpose in WordPress for Mental States Annotation

May 30, 2019
Fabio Paolizzo

M-GWAP is a multimodal game with a purpose of that leverages on the wisdom of crowds phenomenon for the annotation of multimedia data in terms of mental states. This game with a purpose is developed in WordPress to allow users implementing the game without programming skills. The game adopts motivational strategies for the player to remain engaged, such as a score system, text motivators while playing, a ranking system to foster competition and mechanics for identify building. The current version of the game was deployed after alpha and beta testing helped refining the game accordingly.

Improving Context Modelling in Multimodal Dialogue Generation

Oct 20, 2018
Shubham Agarwal, Ondrej Dusek, Ioannis Konstas, Verena Rieser

In this work, we investigate the task of textual response generation in a multimodal task-oriented dialogue system. Our work is based on the recently released Multimodal Dialogue (MMD) dataset (Saha et al., 2017) in the fashion domain. We introduce a multimodal extension to the Hierarchical Recurrent Encoder-Decoder (HRED) model and show that this extension outperforms strong baselines in terms of text-based similarity metrics. We also showcase the shortcomings of current vision and language models by performing an error analysis on our system's output.

NeuralREG: An end-to-end approach to referring expression generation

May 21, 2018
Thiago Castro Ferreira, Diego Moussallem, Ákos Kádár, Sander Wubben, Emiel Krahmer

Traditionally, Referring Expression Generation (REG) models first decide on the form and then on the content of references to discourse entities in text, typically relying on features such as salience and grammatical function. In this paper, we present a new approach (NeuralREG), relying on deep neural networks, which makes decisions about form and content in one go without explicit feature extraction. Using a delexicalized version of the WebNLG corpus, we show that the neural model substantially improves over two strong baselines. Data and models are publicly available.

Email Classification into Relevant Category Using Neural Networks

Feb 12, 2018
Deepak Kumar Gupta, Shruti Goyal

In the real world, many online shopping websites or service provider have single email-id where customers can send their query, concern etc. At the back-end service provider receive million of emails every week, how they can identify which email is belonged of a particular department? This paper presents an artificial neural network (ANN) model that is used to solve this problem and experiments are carried out on user personal Gmail emails datasets. This problem can be generalised as typical Text Classification or Categorization.

A Gentle Tutorial of Recurrent Neural Network with Error Backpropagation

Jan 14, 2018
Gang Chen

We describe recurrent neural networks (RNNs), which have attracted great attention on sequential tasks, such as handwriting recognition, speech recognition and image to text. However, compared to general feedforward neural networks, RNNs have feedback loops, which makes it a little hard to understand the backpropagation step. Thus, we focus on basics, especially the error backpropagation to compute gradients with respect to model parameters. Further, we go into detail on how error backpropagation algorithm is applied on long short-term memory (LSTM) by unfolding the memory unit.

Sequence to Sequence Learning for Event Prediction

Sep 18, 2017
Dai Quoc Nguyen, Dat Quoc Nguyen, Cuong Xuan Chu, Stefan Thater, Manfred Pinkal

This paper presents an approach to the task of predicting an event description from a preceding sentence in a text. Our approach explores sequence-to-sequence learning using a bidirectional multi-layer recurrent neural network. Our approach substantially outperforms previous work in terms of the BLEU score on two datasets derived from WikiHow and DeScript respectively. Since the BLEU score is not easy to interpret as a measure of event prediction, we complement our study with a second evaluation that exploits the rich linguistic annotation of gold paraphrase sets of events.
