An Evidential Reasoning Approach to Weighted Combination of Classifiers for Word Sense Disambiguation

  title={An Evidential Reasoning Approach to Weighted Combination of Classifiers for Word Sense Disambiguation},
  author={Cuong Anh Le and Van-Nam Huynh and Akira Shimazu},
Arguing that various ways of using context in word sense disambiguation (WSD) can be considered as distinct representations of a polysemous word, a theoretical framework for the weighted combination of soft decisions generated by experts employing these distinct representations is proposed in this paper. Essentially, this approach is based on the Dempster-Shafer theory of evidence. By taking the confidence of individual classifiers into account, a general rule of weighted combination for… 

Weighted Combination of Classifiers Based on Dempster-Shafer Theory and OWA Operators in Word Sense Disambiguation

This paper experimentally design a set of individual classifiers, each of which corresponds to a distinct representation type of context considered in the WSD literature, and then the discussed combination strategies are tested on the datasets for four polysemous words.

Distributed Fusion of Sensor Data in a Constrained Wireless Network

This paper addresses the problem of presence detection in a building as a distributed sensing of a hidden Markov model (DS-HMM) with limitations on the communication and proposes an efficient transmission policy, jointly with a fusion algorithm, to merge data from various HMMs running separately on all sensor nodes but with all the models observing the same Markovian process.

Performance of intelligent lighting sensor networks : analysis, modeling and distributed architectures

The aim of this thesis is to address the challenges in realizing a scalable and inherently heterogeneous IoT lighting network by proposing a layered probabilistic framework for occupancy-based control in intelligent buildings and showing that propagating uncertainty through each layer instead of standard hard decision outcomes improves the overall system performance.



Word-Sense Disambiguation Using Decomposable Models

This paper describes a method for formulating probabilistic models that use multiple contextual features for word-sense disambiguation, without requiring untested assumptions regarding the form of the model.

Combining Heterogeneous Classifiers for Word Sense Disambiguation

This paper discusses ensembles of simple but heterogeneous classifiers for word-sense disambiguation, examining the Stanford-CS224N system entered in the SENSEVAL-2 English lexical sample task and presents an analysis of the combination, examining how ensemble performance depends on error independence and task difficulty.

Integrating Multiple Knowledge Sources to Disambiguate Word Sense: An Exemplar-Based Approach

This approach integrates a diverse set of knowledge sources to disambiguate word sense, including part of speech of neighboring words, morphological form, the unordered set of surrounding words, local collocations, and verb-object syntactic relation.

Modeling Consensus: Classifier Combination for Word Sense Disambiguation

When evaluated on the standard SENSEVAL 1 and 2 data sets on 4 languages (English, Spanish, Basque, and Swedish), classifier combination performance exceeds the best published results on these data sets.

A Simple Approach to Building Ensembles of Naive Bayesian Classifiers for Word Sense Disambiguation

A corpus-based approach to word sense disambiguation that builds an ensemble of Naive Bayesian classifiers, each of which is based on lexical features that represent co-occurring words in varying sized windows of context achieves accuracy rivaling the best previously published results.

Trajectory Based Word Sense Disambiguation

A new combinational method that aims to lower the uncertainty brought by classifiers using different context windows and make more robust utilization of context while perform well is proposed.

Parameter optimization for machine-learning of word sense disambiguation

It is demonstrated that optimization per word-expert leads to an overall significant improvement in the generalization accuracies of the produced WSD systems.

Using Corpus Statistics and WordNet Relations for Sense Identification

A statistical classifier is described that combines topical context with local cues to identify a word sense and is used to disambiguate a noun, a verb, and an adjective.

Introduction to the Special Issue on Word Sense Disambiguation: The State of the Art

Corva provide information about relationships among words, most notably synonymy, and have become a primary source of information for WSD; this development is outlined below.

Framework and Results for English SENSEVAL

The exercise identifies the state-of-the-art for fine-grained word sense disambiguation, where training data is available, as 74–78% correct, with a number of algorithms approaching this level of performance.
