  • Dataless text classification [Chang et al., 2008] is a classification paradigm which maps documents into a given label space without requiring any annotated training data. This paper explores a crosslingual variant of this paradigm, where documents in multiple languages are classified into an English label space. We use CLESA (cross-lingual explicit semantic analysis) to embed both foreign language documents and an English label space into a shared semantic space, and select the best label(s… CONTINUE READING
