An Algorithm for Open Text Semantic Parsing

An Algorithm for Open Text Semantic Parsing

Date: August 2004
Creator: Shi, Lei & Mihalcea, Rada, 1974-
Description: Abstract: This paper describes an algorithm for open text shallow semantic parsing. The algorithm relies on a frame dataset (FrameNet) and a semantic network (WordNet), to identify semantic relations between words in open text, as well as shallow semantic features associated with concepts in the text. Parsing semantic structures allows semantic units and constituents to be accessed and processed in a more meaningful way than syntactic parsing, moving the automation of understanding natural language text to a higher level.

Amazon Mechanical Turk for Subjectivity Word Sense Disambiguation

Amazon Mechanical Turk for Subjectivity Word Sense Disambiguation

Date: June 2010
Creator: Akkaya, Cem; Conrad, Alexander; Wiebe, Janyce M. & Mihalcea, Rada, 1974-
Description: In this paper, the authors discuss research on whether they can use Mechanical Turk (MTurk) to acquire goo annotations with respect to gold-standard data, whether they can filter out low-quality workers (spammers), and whether there is a learning effect associated with repeatedly completing the same kind of task.

Anchor Nodes Placement for Effective Passive Localization

Anchor Nodes Placement for Effective Passive Localization

Date: 2011
Creator: Akl, Robert G.; Pasupathy, Karthikeyan & Haidar, Mohamad
Description: This paper discusses anchor nodes placement for effective passive localization. The authors show that, for effective passive localization, the optimal placement of the anchor nodes is at the center of the network in such a way that no three anchor nodes share linearity.

Assessing Descriptive Substance in Free-Text Collection-Level Metadata

Assessing Descriptive Substance in Free-Text Collection-Level Metadata

Date: September 2008
Creator: Zavalina, Oksana; Palmer, Carole L.; Jackson, Amy S. & Han, Myung-Ja
Description: This paper discusses assessing descriptive substance in free-text collection-level metadata. Abstract: Collection-level metadata has the potential to provide important information about the features and purpose of individual collections. This paper reports on a content analysis of collection records in an aggregation of cultural heritage collections. The findings show that the free-text Description field often provides more accurate and complete representation of subjects and object types than the specified fields. Properties such as importance, uniqueness, comprehensiveness, provenance, and creator are articulated, as well as other vital contextual information about the intentions of a collector and the value of a collection, as a whole, for scholarly users. The results demonstrate that the semantically rich free-text Description field is essential to understanding the context of collections in large aggregations and can serve as a source of data for enhancing and customizing controlled vocabularies.

Assessing Metadata Utilization: An Analysis of MARC Content Designation Use

Assessing Metadata Utilization: An Analysis of MARC Content Designation Use

Date: 2003
Creator: Moen, William E. & Benardino, Penelope
Description: This paper discusses metadata utilization. Abstract: Metadata schemes emerge to meet community and user requirements, and they evolve over time to meet changing requirements. This paper reports results of an analysis of a large sample of MARC 21 bibliographic records. MARC 21 is an encoding scheme related closely to metadata elements occurring in library bibliographic records. The records were analyzed for the utilization of content designation available in MARC 21. Results indicate that less than 5% of available content designation accounts for over 80% of occurrences. The implications of these findings affect indexing policies, system design, and can inform setting requirements for extending a metadata scheme based on a threshold of community requirements.
