Notes

Abstract: In the past few years, we have witnessed a tremendous growth of the World Wide Web, both in terms of number of Web pages accessible online - resulting in what represents today the largest publicly available corpus, and in terms of number of Web users - who now these two main dimensions - pages and users - has opened the doors to a realm of new approaches to data-hungry and knowledge-hungry language processing applications. Among these, Word Sense Disambiguation is one of the applications that has the potential of benefiting the most from the large amounts of Web-based data and from the availability of inexpensive Web user supervision. In this paper, the author discusses the main lines of research in deriving efficient Word Sense Disambiguation methods that exploit: (1) the Web as a corpus - which represents a view of the Web seen as an enormous collection of Web pages; and (2) the Web as collective mind - where the Web is regarded as a large group of Web users who can contribute their knowledge to the process of identifying word meanings.
