Speculation and Negation Scope Detection via Convolutional Neural Networks

Zhong Qian, Peifeng Li, Qiaoming Zhu, Guodong Zhou, Zhunchen Luo, Wei Luo
2016 Proceedings of the 2016 Conference on Empirical Methods in Natural Language Processing  
In this paper, we propose a Convolutional Neural Network (CNN)-based model with probabilistic weighted average pooling to address speculation and negation scope detection.  ...  In particular, our CNN-based model extracts those meaningful features from various syntactic paths between the cues and the candidate tokens in both constituency and dependency parse trees.  ...  In addition, thanks to the three anonymous reviewers for their valuable comments.  ...

Scope resolution of predicted negation cues: A two-step neural network-based approach [article]

Daan de Jong
2021 arXiv   pre-print
Neural network-based methods are the state of the art in negation scope resolution. However, they often use the unrealistic assumption that cue information is completely accurate.  ...  The current study adopted a two-step negation resolving apporach to assess whether a Bidirectional Long Short-Term Memory-based method can be used for cue detection as well, and how inaccurate cue predictions  ...  Conclusion and future research The current study adopted a neural network-based approach to both sub tasks of negation resolving: cue detection and scope resolution.  ...
