According to current hypotheses on the evolution of life history traits and social systems of Malagasy lemurs, nocturnality is associated with a solitary lifestyle and a polygynous or promiscuous mating system. Recent studies, however, have indicated that this may not be true of all lemurs. The goal of this study was to investigate the sociality and the(More)
This article presents the GETALP system for the participation to SemEval-2013 Task 12, based on an adaptation of the Lesk measure propagated through an Ant Colony Algorithm, that yielded good results on the corpus of Se-meval 2007 Task 7 (WordNet 2.1) as well as the trial data for Task 12 SemEval 2013 (Ba-belNet 1.0). We approach the parameter estimation to(More)
Word Sense Disambiguation (WSD) is a difficult problem for NLP. Algorithm that aim to solve the problem focus on the quality of the disambiguation alone and require considerable computational time. In this article we focus on the study of three unsupervised stochastic algorithms for WSD: a Genetic Algorithm (GA) and a Simulated Annealing algorithm (SA) from(More)
Large-scale comparisons might reveal matching between fruit traits and frugivore assemblages that might be cryptic on a local scale. Therefore, we compared morphological (colour, size, husk thickness) and chemical fruit traits (protein, nitrogen, sugar, lipid, tannin and fibre content) between Malagasy and South African tree communities with different(More)
Brute-force word sense disambiguation (WSD) algorithms based on semantic relatedness are really time consuming. We study how to perform WSD faster and better on the span of a text. Several stochastic algorithms can be used to perform Global WSD. We focus here on an Ant Colony Algorithm and compare it to two other methods (Genetic and Simulated Annealing(More)
