To explore the potential application of semantic roles in structural machine translation, we propose to study the automatic learning of English-Chinese bilingual predicate argument structure mapping. We describe ARG ALIGN, a new model for learning bilingual semantic frames that employs monolin-gual Chinese and English semantic parsers to learn bilingual(More)
Parsing, the task of identifying syntactic components, e.g., noun and verb phrases, in a sentence, is one of the fundamental tasks in natural language processing. Many natural language applications such as spoken-language understanding, machine translation, and information extraction, would benefit from, or even require, high accuracy parsing as a(More)
We present twin results on Chinese semantic parsing , with application to English-Chinese cross-lingual verb frame acquisition. First, we describe two new state-of-the-art Chinese shallow semantic parsers leading to an F-score of 82.01 on simultaneous frame and argument boundary identification and labeling. Subsequently, we propose a model that applies the(More)
OBJECTIVE This study aimed to track the inclusion of women in clinical trials for new drugs approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) between 2000 and 2002 and to evaluate the extent of analyses by sex. METHODS Data were extracted from FDA reviewers' reports, summaries of clinical trials in New Drug Applications (NDAs), and product labeling and(More)
The paper describes the design, collection, transcription and analysis of 200 hours of HKUST Mandarin Telephone Speech Corpus (HKUST/MTS) from over 2100 Mandarin speakers in mainland China under the DARPA EARS framework. The corpus includes speech data, transcriptions and speaker demographic information. The speech data include 1206 ten-minute natural(More)
This paper introduces a novel thruster fault diagnosis and accommodation system for open-frame underwater vehicles with abrupt faults. The proposed system consists of two subsystems: a fault diagnosis subsystem and a fault accommodation subsystem. In the fault diagnosis subsystem a ICMAC(Improved Credit Assignment Cerebellar Model Articulation Controllers)(More)
To determine if an IVIVC model can predict PK profiles of varying formulations of a BCS Class 1 drug that is a salt of a weak base. An IVIVC model (Level A) was created by correlating deconvoluted in vivo absorption data obtained from oral administration of 50 mg, 100 mg, and 200 mg fast and slow extended release formulations with in vitro percent dissolved(More)
Biological soil crusts (BSCs) cover >35% of the Earth's land area and contribute to important ecological functions in arid and semiarid ecosystems, including erosion reduction, hydrological cycling, and nutrient cycling. Artificial rapid cultivation of BSCs can provide a novel alternative to traditional biological methods for controlling soil and water loss(More)
This paper presents a maximum entropy method for the disambiguation of word senses as defined in HowNet. With the release of this bilingual (Chinese and English) knowledge base in 1999, a corpus of 30,000 words was sense tagged and released in January 2002. Concepts meanings in HowNet are constructed by a closed set of sememes, the smallest meaning units,(More)
