Extracting named entities in text and linking extracted names to a given knowledge base are fundamental tasks in applications for text understanding. Existing systems typically run a named entity recognition (NER) model to extract entity names first, then run an entity linking model to link extracted names to a knowledge base. NER and linking models are(More)

Comparative news summarization aims to highlight the commonalities and differences between two comparable news topics by using human-readable sentences. The summary ought to focus on the salient comparative aspects of both topics, and at the same time, it should describe the representative properties of each topic appropriately. In this study, we propose a(More)
Wikification for tweets aims to automatically identify each concept mention in a tweet and link it to a concept referent in a knowledge base (e.g., Wikipedia). Due to the shortness of a tweet, a collective inference model incorporating global evidence from multiple mentions and concepts is more appropriate than a noncollecitve approach which links each(More)
This paper describes the systems of PKUTM in Text Analysis Conference (TAC) 2010. We participated in the Recognizing Textual Entailment (RTE) track and the Summarization track. For the RTE track, we propose a method to map every node in the hypothesis to one or more nodes in the text. With the help of named-entities tools, MINIPAR relationships, and regular(More)
News comment is a new text genre in the Web 2.0 era. Many people often write comments to express their opinions about recent news events or topics after they read news articles. Because news comments are freely written without checking, they are very different from formal news texts. In particular, named entities in news comments are usually composed of(More)
In this paper, polyethyleneterephthalate (PET) films with and without plasma pretreatment were modified by atomic layer deposition (ALD) and plasma-assisted atomic layer deposition (PA-ALD). It demonstrates that the Al2O3 films are successfully deposited onto the surface of PET films. The cracks formed on the deposited Al2O3 films in the ALD, plasma(More)
