Semantic Role Labeling for Process Recognition Questions

  title={Semantic Role Labeling for Process Recognition Questions},
  author={Samuel Louvan and Chetan Naik and Veronica E. Lynn and A. Arun and Niranjan Balasubramanian and P. Clark},
We consider a 4th grade level question answering task. We focus on a subset involving recognizing instances of physical, biological, and other natural processes. Many processes involve similar entities and are hard to distinguish using simple bag-ofwords representations alone. Simple semantic roles such as Input, Result, and Enabler can often capture the most critical bits of information about processes. Our QA system scores answers by aligning semantic roles in the question against the roles… Expand

An Exploratory Study on Process Representations
Thesis An Exploratory Study on Process Representations examines the role of symbols in the development of knowledge representation and the role that language plays in the design of these representations. Expand


Multilingual Semantic Role Labeling
This paper describes the contribution of a pipeline of independent, local classifiers that identify the predicate sense, the arguments of the predicates, and the argument labels to the semantic role labeling task of the CoNLL-2009 shared task in the closed challenge. Expand
Unsupervised Induction of Semantic Roles
A method for inducing the semantic roles of verbal arguments directly from unannotated text by detecting alternations and finding a canonical syntactic form for them in a novel probabilistic model, a latent-variable variant of the logistic classifier. Expand
Distant supervision for relation extraction without labeled data
This work investigates an alternative paradigm that does not require labeled corpora, avoiding the domain dependence of ACE-style algorithms, and allowing the use of corpora of any size. Expand
Graph Alignment for Semi-Supervised Semantic Role Labeling
A semi-supervised learning approach which acquires training instances for unseen verbs from an unlabeled corpus and relies on the hypothesis that unknown lexical items will be structurally and semantically similar to known items for which annotations are available. Expand
A study of the knowledge base requirements for passing an elementary science test
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.

Frustratingly Easy Domain Adaptation
We describe an approach to domain adaptation that is appropriate exactly in the case when one has enough “target” data to do slightly better than just using only “source” data. Our approach isExpand
Unsupervised Semantic Role Induction with Graph Partitioning
The method is algorithmically and conceptually simple, especially with respect to how problem-specific knowledge is incorporated into the model, and competitive with other unsupervised approaches in terms of F1 whilst attaining significantly higher cluster purity. Expand
