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)
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)
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)
The induction of apoptosis-resistant rheumatoid synovial tissue cells has been related to constitutively active Janus kinase/signal transducers and activators of transcription (JAK/STAT) signaling in rheumatoid arthritis (RA). The excessive proliferation and inherent resistance to apoptosis of fibroblast-like synoviocytes (FLS) is an important mechanism by(More)
