Recent Developments in Computational Semantics

Seminar: Computerlinguistik, B.Sc./M.Sc.

Leitung: Pinkal
Ort: C7.2 Raum 2.11
Zeit: Di 14-16 Uhr
Beginn: 24.04.2012
Geeignet für: B.Sc./M.Sc.

Due to the advance of data-intensive methods, semantics has continuously moved into the focus of language technology and computational linguistics research, during the last decade. We will look into central topics like

  • Similarity Modeling in distrubutional semantics
  • Word-sense disambiguation and discrimination
  • Semantic role labeling
  • Acquisition of paraphrases, inference patterns and script information
In this semester, we will pay special attention to
  • Generative approaches using latent variables
  • Processing of temporal information in texts
  • Grounding of distributional meaning in the (visual) world.
