Aligning Script Events with Narrative Texts Inproceedings

Proceedings of the 6th Joint Conference on Lexical and Computational Semantics (*SEM 2017), Association for Computational Linguistics, Vancouver, Canada, 2017.

Script knowledge plays a central role in text understanding and is relevant for a variety of downstream tasks. In this paper, we consider two recent datasets which provide a rich and general representation of script events in terms of paraphrase sets.

We introduce the task of mapping event mentions in narrative texts to such script event types, and present a model for this task that exploits rich linguistic representations as well as information on temporal ordering. The results of our experiments demonstrate that this complex task is indeed feasible.

A Mixture Model for Learning Multi-Sense Word Embeddings Inproceedings

Association for Computational Linguistics, pp. 121-127, Vancouver, Canada, 2017.

Word embeddings are now a standard technique for inducing meaning representations for words. For getting good representations, it is important to take into account different senses of a word. In this paper, we propose a mixture model for learning multi-sense word embeddings.

Our model generalizes the previous works in that it allows to induce different weights of different senses of a word. The experimental results show that our model outperforms previous models on standard evaluation tasks.

Sequence to Sequence Learning for Event Prediction Inproceedings

Proceedings of the Eighth International Joint Conference on Natural Language Processing (Volume 2: Short Papers), Asian Federation of Natural Language Processing, pp. 37-42, Taipei, Taiwan, 2017.

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.
