In extractive spoken document summarization, it is desired to select important utterances from documents to construct the summary while avoiding redundancy among the selected utterances, but it is not easy to balance the two different goals. In this paper, a supervised spoken document summarization approach is proposed based on structured support vector(More)
In this paper, we propose a semantic query expansion approach by extending the query-regularized mixture model to include latent topics and apply it to spoken documents. We also propose to use context feature vectors for spoken segments to train SVM models to enhance the posterior-weighted normalized term frequencies in lattices. Experiments on Mandarin(More)
An efficient and short entry to polyfunctionalized linear triquinanes from 2-methoxyphenols is described by utilizing the following chemistry. The Diels-Alder reactions of masked o-benzoquinones, derived from 2-methoxyphenols, with cyclopentadiene afford tricyclo[5.2.2.0(2,6)]undeca-4,10-dien-8-ones. Photochemical oxa-di-pi-methane (ODPM) rearrangements and(More)
Supervised approaches can learn a spoken document summarizer generating high-quality summaries using a set of training examples matched to the domain of target documents. However, preparing a sufficient number of in-domain training examples is expensive. In this paper we propose an approach for unsupervised domain adaptation for spoken document(More)
Cleome gynandra L. is a leafy vegetable native to sub-Saharan Africa and Asia and cultivated on dry areas. The plant plays an important role in the food and nutrition security of local communities. The objective of this study was to illustrate variation and diversity in the Cleome collection held at the World Vegetable Center. In total, 242 accessions were(More)
The first asymmetric total syntheses of sesquiterpene lactones (+)-eudesmadiene-12,6-olide (1) and (+)-frullanolide (2) have been accomplished from 4-bromo-2-methoxyphenol (5) in 12 and 13 synthetic steps, respectively, and the absolute configurations of these two natural products were determined.
[reaction: see text] The first examples of highly diastereoselective and asymmetric Diels-Alder cycloadditions of in situ generated masked o-benzoquinones (MOBs) with chiral racemic and homochiral furans bearing a chiral center in the alpha-position leading to highly functionalized diastereomeric/enantioselective tricyclic heterocycles and chiral tricyclic(More)
