Text Semantic Similarity, with Applications

Description: In this paper, the authors present a knowledge-based method for measuring the semantic-similarity of texts. Through experiments performed on two different applications: (1) paraphrase and entailment identification, and (2) word sense similarity, the authors show that this method outperforms the traditional text similarity metrics based on lexical matching.

Unsupervised Large-Vocabulary Word Sense Disambiguation with Graph-based Algorithms for Sequence Data Labeling

Description: This paper introduces a graph-based algorithm for sequence data labeling, using random walks on graphs encoding label dependencies. The algorithm is illustrated and tested in the context of an unsupervised word sense disambiguation problem, and shown to significantly outperform the accuracy achieved through individual label assignment, as measured on standard sense-annotated data sets.

Retention and Recruitment of Women in Computer Engineering

Description: This presentation discusses strategies and goals for recruiting more women to Computer Science and Engineering degree (CSE) programs at the University of North Texas (UNT). It also describes a series of activities aimed at improving retention rates of women students already in our programs. Such recruitment and retention of women is critical to the country's efforts to increase the number of engineering professionals, and is a priority for the CSE Department at UNT.
