KNOW At The Social Book Search Lab 2016 Mining Track

CLEF 2016 Social Book Search Lab, Krisztian Balog, Linda Cappellato, Nicola Ferro,Craig Macdonald, Springer, Évora, Portugal, 2016

This paper describes our system for the mining task of theSocial Book Search Lab in 2016. The track consisted of two task, theclassification of book request postings and the task of linking book identifierswith references mentioned within the text. For the classificationtask we used text mining features like n-grams and vocabulary size, butalso included advanced features like average spelling errors found withinthe text. Here two datasets were provided by the organizers for this taskwhich were evaluated separately. The second task, the linking of booktitles to a work identifier, was addressed by an approach based on lookuptables. For the dataset of the first task our approach was ranked third,following two baseline approaches of the organizers with an accuracy of91 percent. For the second dataset we achieved second place with anaccuracy of 82 percent. Our approach secured the first place with anF-score of 33.50 for the second task.

Polarity Classification for Target Phrases in Tweets: A Word2Vec approach

The Semantic Web, ESWC 2016 Satellite Events, ESWC 2016, Springer-Verlag, Crete, Greece, 2016

Twitter is one of the most popular micro-blogging serviceson the web. The service allows sharing, interaction and collaboration viashort, informal and often unstructured messages called tweets. Polarityclassification of tweets refers to the task of assigning a positive or a nega-tive sentiment to an entire tweet. Quite similar is predicting the polarityof a specific target phrase, for instance@Microsoftor#Linux,whichiscontained in the tweet.In this paper we present a Word2Vec approach to automatically pre-dict the polarity of a target phrase in a tweet. In our classification setting,we thus do not have any polarity information but use only semantic infor-mation provided by a Word2Vec model trained on Twitter messages. Toevaluate our feature representation approach, we apply well-establishedclassification algorithms such as the Support Vector Machine and NaiveBayes. For the evaluation we used theSemeval 2016 Task #4dataset.Our approach achieves F1-measures of up to∼90 % for the positive classand∼54 % for the negative class without using polarity informationabout single words.

Know-Center at SemEval-2016 Task 5: Using Word Vectors with Typed Dependencies for Opinion Target Expression Extraction

Conference: Proceedings of the 10th International Workshop on Semantic Evaluation (SemEval-2016), SemEval 2016, ACL Anthology, San Diego, USA, 2016

This paper describes our participation in SemEval-2016 Task 5 for Subtask 1, Slot 2.The challenge demands to find domain specific target expressions on sentence level thatrefer to reviewed entities. The detection of target words is achieved by using word vectorsand their grammatical dependency relationships to classify each word in a sentence into target or non-target. A heuristic based function then expands the classified target words tothe whole target phrase. Our system achievedan F1 score of 56.816% for this task.

An Information Retrieval Based Approach for Multilingual Ontology Matching

International Conference on Applications of Natural Language to Information Systems, Métais E., Meziane F., Saraee M., Sugumaran V., Vadera S. , Springer , Salford, UK, 2016

Ontology matching in a multilingual environment consists of finding alignments between ontologies modeled by using more than one language. Such a research topic combines traditional ontology matching algorithms with the use of multilingual resources, services, and capabilities for easing multilingual matching. In this paper, we present a multilingual ontology matching approach based on Information Retrieval (IR) techniques: ontologies are indexed through an inverted index algorithm and candidate matches are found by querying such indexes. We also exploit the hierarchical structure of the ontologies by adopting the PageRank algorithm for our system. The approaches have been evaluated using a set of domain-specific ontologies belonging to the agricultural and medical domain. We compare our results with existing systems following an evaluation strategy closely resembling a recommendation scenario. The version of our system using PageRank showed an increase in performance in our evaluations.

Identifying Referenced Text in ScientificPublications by Summarisation andClassification Techniques

BIRNDL 2016 Joint Workshop on Bibliometric-enhanced Information Retrieval and NLP for Digital Libraries, G. Cabanac, Muthu Kumar Chandrasekaran, Ingo Frommholz , Kokil Jaidka, Min-Yen Kan, Philipp Mayr, Dietmar Wolfram, ACM, New Jersey, USA, 2016

This report describes our contribution to the 2nd ComputationalLinguistics Scientific Document Summarization Shared Task (CLSciSumm2016), which asked to identify the relevant text span in a referencepaper that corresponds to a citation in another document that citesthis paper. We developed three different approaches based on summarisationand classification techniques. First, we applied a modified versionof an unsupervised summarisation technique, TextSentenceRank, to thereference document, which incorporates the similarity of sentences tothe citation on a textual level. Second, we employed classification to selectfrom candidates previously extracted through the original TextSentenceRankalgorithm. Third, we used unsupervised summarisation of therelevant sub-part of the document that was previously selected in a supervisedmanner.

Profiling microblog authors using concreteness and sentiment - Know-Center at PAN 2016 author profiling

PAN 2016, Krisztian Balog, Linda Cappellato, Nicola Ferro, Craig Macdonald, Springer, Evora, Portugal, 2016

The PAN 2016 author profiling task is a supervised classification problemon cross-genre documents (tweets, blog and social media posts). Our systemmakes use of concreteness, sentiment and syntactic information present in thedocuments. We train a random forest model to identify gender and age of a document’sauthor. We report the evaluation results received by the shared task.

Social Media Monitoring for Companies: A 4W Summarisation Approach

European Conference on Knowledge Management, Dr. Sandra Moffett and Dr. Brendan Galbraith, Academic Conferences and Publishing International Limited, Belfast, Northern Ireland, UK, 2016

Monitoring (social) media represents one means for companies to gain access to knowledge about, for instance, competitors, products as well as markets. As a consequence, social media monitoring tools have been gaining attention to handle amounts of data nowadays generated in social media. These tools also include summarisation services. However, most summarisation algorithms tend to focus on (i) first and last sentences respectively or (ii) sentences containing keywords.In this work we approach the task of summarisation by extracting 4W (who, when, where, what) information from (social)media texts. Presenting 4W information allows for a more compact content representation than traditional summaries. Inaddition, we depart from mere named entity recognition (NER) techniques to answer these four question types by includingnon-rigid designators, i.e. expressions which do not refer to the same thing in all possible worlds such as “at the main square”or “leaders of political parties”. To do that, we employ dependency parsing to identify grammatical characteristics for each question type. Every sentence is then represented as a 4W block. We perform two different preliminary studies: selecting sentences that better summarise texts by achieving an F1-measure of 0.343, as well as a 4W block extraction for which we achieve F1-measures of 0.932; 0.900; 0.803; 0.861 for “who”, “when”, “where” and “what” category respectively. In a next step the 4W blocks are ranked by relevance. The top three ranked blocks, for example, then constitute a summary of the entire textual passage. The relevance metric can be customised to the user’s needs, for instance, ranked by up-to-dateness where the sentences’ tense is taken into account. In a user study we evaluate different ranking strategies including (i) up-todateness,(ii) text sentence rank, (iii) selecting the firsts and lasts sentences or (iv) coverage of named entities, i.e. based on the number of named entities in the sentence. Our 4W summarisation method presents a valuable addition to a company’s(social) media monitoring toolkit, thus supporting decision making processes.

Towards a more fine grained analysis of scientific authorship: Predicting the number of authors using stylometric features

BIR 2016 Workshop on Bibliometric-enhanced Information Retrieval, Atanassova, I.; Bertin, M.; Mayr, P., Springer, Padova, Italy, 2016

To bring bibliometrics and information retrieval closer together, we propose to add the concept of author attribution into the pre-processing of scientific publications. Presently, common bibliographic metrics often attribute the entire article to all the authors affecting author-specific retrieval processes. We envision a more finegrained analysis of scientific authorship by attributing particular segments to authors. To realize this vision, we propose a new feature representation of scientific publications that captures the distribution of tylometric features. In a classification setting, we then seek to predict the number of authors of a scientific article. We evaluate our approach on a data set of ~ 6100 PubMed articles and achieve best results by applying random forests, i.e., 0.76 precision and 0.76 recall averaged over all classes.

Exploiting Propositions for Opinion Mining

ESWC-16 Challenge on Semantic Sentiment Analysis, Springer Link, Springer-Verlag, Crete, Greece, 2016

With different social media and commercial platforms, users express their opinion about products in a textual form. Automatically extracting the polarity (i.e. whether the opinion is positive or negative) of a user can be useful for both actors: the online platform incorporating the feedback to improve their product as well as the client who might get recommendations according to his or her preferences. Different approaches for tackling the problem, have been suggested mainly using syntactic features. The “Challenge on Semantic Sentiment Analysis” aims to go beyond the word-level analysis by using semantic information. In this paper we propose a novel approach by employing the semantic information of grammatical unit called preposition. We try to drive the target of the review from the summary information, which serves as an input to identify the proposition in it. Our implementation relies on the hypothesis that the proposition expressing the target of the summary, usually containing the main polarity information.
