Biological processes are complex phenomena involving a series of events that are related to one another through various relationships. [] Key Method We represent processes by graphs whose edges describe a set of temporal, causal and co-reference event-event relations, and characterize the structural properties of these graphs (e.g., the graphs are connected).

Learning Structures of Biological Processes with Joint Inference
TLDR
This project aims to predict the events, entities associated with events, and event- event relations at the same time through joint inference in the hope of lowering cascading errors introduced from the pipeline framework, i.e. predict entities and inter-event relations based on the event prediction.
Knowledge-Enriched Event Causality Identification via Latent Structure Induction Networks
TLDR
This work proposes a novel Latent Structure Induction Network (LSIN) to incorporate the external structural knowledge into this task and devise a Descriptive Graph Induction module to obtain and encode the graph-structured descriptive knowledge.
Reasoning about Actions and State Changes by Injecting Commonsense Knowledge
TLDR
This paper shows how the predicted effects of actions in the context of a paragraph can be improved in two ways: by incorporating global, commonsense constraints (e.g., a non-existent entity cannot be destroyed), and by biasing reading with preferences from large-scale corpora.
Modeling Biological Processes for Reading Comprehension
TLDR
This paper focuses on a new reading comprehension task that requires complex reasoning over a single document, and demonstrates that answering questions via predicted structures substantially improves accuracy over baselines that use shallower representations.
Causality Mining in Natural Languages Using Machine and Deep Learning Techniques: A Survey
TLDR
A detailed taxonomy of causality mining from textual data is presented and popular ML and DL approaches with their comparative weaknesses and strengths, applications, popular datasets, and frameworks are discussed.
Combining Formal and Distributional Models of Temporal and Intensional Semantics
TLDR
It is shown how to closely integrate this information with theories of formal semantics, allowing complex compositional inferences such as is visiting! has arrived in but will leave, which will allow machine reading systems to understand not just what has happened, but when.
A study of the knowledge base requirements for passing an elementary science test
TLDR
The analysis suggests that as well as fact extraction from text and statistically driven rule extraction, three other styles of automatic knowledge base construction (AKBC) would be useful: acquiring definitional knowledge, direct 'reading' of rules from texts that state them, and, given a particular representational framework, acquisition of specific instances of those models from text.
HOLMES: A Hybrid Ontology-Learning Materials Engineering System
TLDR
This dissertation explores the difficult task of developing an artificial intelligence-based knowledge modeling environment, called Hybrid Ontology-Learning Materials Engineering System (HOLMES), that can assist humans in populating a materials science and engineering ontology through automatic information extraction from journal article abstracts.
Annotating and Extracting Synthesis Process of All-Solid-State Batteries from Scientific Literature
TLDR
A novel corpus of the synthesis process for all-solid-state batteries and an automated machine reading system for extracting the synthesis processes buried in the scientific literature are presented.
Emotion Action Detection and Emotion Inference: the Task and Dataset
TLDR
Cause-Emotion-Action Corpus is presented, which manually annotates not only emotion, but also cause events and action events, and proposes two new tasks based on the data-set: emotion causality and emotion inference.

Event Extraction with Complex Event Classification Using Rich Features
TLDR
An automatic event extraction system, which contains a model for complex events, by solving a classification problem with rich features, which outperforms the best system from the BioNLP'09 shared task challenge.
Event Extraction as Dependency Parsing
TLDR
This work proposes a simple approach for the extraction of nested event structures by taking the tree of event-argument relations and using it directly as the representation in a reranking dependency parser, which provides a simple framework that captures global properties of both nested and flat event structures.
Predicting Globally-Coherent Temporal Structures from Texts via Endpoint Inference and Graph Decomposition
TLDR
This paper proposes two innovations, inspired from work on temporal reasoning, that render an exact ILP inference viable in the general case, and shows that additional efficiency is gained by enforcing coherence on particular subsets of the entire temporal graphs.
Jointly Identifying Temporal Relations with Markov Logic
TLDR
This work proposes a Markov Logic model that jointly identifies relations of all three relation types simultaneously and shows that this approach leads to about 2% higher accuracy for all three types of relations ---and to the best results for the task when compared to those of other machine learning based systems.
Classifying Temporal Relations with Rich Linguistic Knowledge
TLDR
This work aims to employ sophisticated linguistic knowledge derived from a variety of semantic and discourse relations, rather than focusing on morpho-syntactic knowledge, and leverage a novel combination of rule-based and learning-based approaches.
Multi-Event Extraction Guided by Global Constraints
TLDR
This paper aims to identify the fields of information contained in a document and aggregate together those fields that describe the same event, and proposes a novel model that substantially outperforms traditional pipeline models.
A Global Joint Model for Semantic Role Labeling
We present a model for semantic role labeling that effectively captures the linguistic intuition that a semantic argument frame is a joint structure, with strong dependencies among the arguments. We
Learning Entailment Relations by Global Graph Structure Optimization
TLDR
A global inference algorithm is proposed that learns on the fly all entailment rules between predicates that co-occur with this concept, and uses a global transitivity constraint on the graph to learn the optimal set of edges.
Learning to Rank Answers to Non-Factoid Questions from Web Collections
TLDR
This work shows that it is possible to exploit existing large collections of question–answer pairs to extract such features and train ranking models which combine them effectively, providing one of the most compelling evidence to date that complex linguistic features such as word senses and semantic roles can have a significant impact on large-scale information retrieval tasks.
Structured learning with constrained conditional models
TLDR
This paper presents Constrained Conditional Models (CCMs), a framework that augments linear models with declarative constraints as a way to support decisions in an expressive output space while maintaining modularity and tractability of training and proposes CoDL, a constraint-driven learning algorithm, which makes use of constraints to guide semi-supervised learning.
