UNT: SubFinder: Combining Knowledge Sources for Automatic Lexical Substitution

Description: This paper describes the University of North Texas SubFinder system. The system is able to provide the most likely set of substitutes for a word in a given context, by combining several techniques and knowledge sources. SubFinder has successfully participated in the best and out of ten (oot) tracks in the SEMEVAL lexical substitution task, consistently ranking in the first or second place.

Text Mining for Automatic Image Tagging

Description: This paper introduces several extractive approaches for automatic image tagging, relying exclusively on information mined from texts. Through evaluations on two datasets, the authors show that their methods exceed competitive baselines by a large margin, and compare favorably with the state-of-the-art that uses both textual and image features.
