TimeML-Compliant Text Analysis for Temporal Reasoning

Branimir Boguraev, Rie Kubota Ando
2005 International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence  
We address this problem with a hybrid TimeML annotator, which uses cascaded finite-state grammars (for temporal expression analysis, shallow syntactic parsing, and feature generation) together with a machine  ...  TimeML-an emerging standard for temporal annotation as a language capturing properties and relationships among timedenoting expressions and events in text-is a good starting point for bridging the gap  ...  Unfortunately, the small size of the TimeBank corpus prevents its straightforward use as a training resource, a problem further exacerbated by the inherent complexity of TimeMLcompliant analysis.  ...

KTimeML: Specification of Temporal and Event Expressions in Korean Text

Seohyun Im, Hyun-Jo You, Hayun Jang, Seungho Nam, Hyopil Shin
2009 Workshop on Asian Language Resources  
TimeML is a specification language for events and temporal expressions in text. This paper presents the problems and solutions for porting TimeML to Korean as a part of the Korean TARSQI Project.  ...  TimeML, TimeBank, and TTK (TARSQI Project) have been playing an important role in enhancement of IE, QA, and other NLP applications.  ...  This work will be a help for QA, IE, and other robust performance for Korean. In addition, KTimeML will be, hopefully, a model for porting TimeML to other agglutinative languages such as Japanese.  ...

Extracting Temporal and Causal Relations between Events [article]

Paramita Mirza
2016 arXiv   pre-print
Structured information resulting from temporal information processing is crucial for a variety of natural language processing tasks, for instance to generate timeline summarization of events from news  ...  We first develop a robust extraction component for each type of relations, i.e. temporal order and causality.  ...  Syntactic Analysis syntactic parsing Parsing means taking an input and producing some sort of linguistic structure for it.  ...

From Characters to Time Intervals: New Paradigms for Evaluation and Neural Parsing of Time Normalizations

Egoitz Laparra, Dongfang Xu, Steven Bethard
2018 Transactions of the Association for Computational Linguistics  
This novel schema favors machine learning approaches, as it can be viewed as a semantic parsing task.  ...  To compare predictions of systems that follow both SCATE and TimeML, we present a new scoring metric for time intervals.  ...  Acknowledgements We thank the anonymous reviewers as well as the action editor, Mona Diab, for helpful comments on an earlier draft of this paper.  ...

Classifying Temporal Relations with Simple Features

Paramita Mirza, Sara Tonelli
2014 Proceedings of the 14th Conference of the European Chapter of the Association for Computational Linguistics  
Approaching temporal link labelling as a classification task has already been explored in several works.  ...  We find that using a simple feature set results in a better performance than using more sophisticated features based on semantic role labelling and deep semantic parsing.  ...  Our features include some basic information on the position, the attributes and the PoS tags of events and timexes, as well as other information obtained from external lexical resources such as a list  ...

ISO-TimeML Event Extraction in Persian Text

Yadollah Yaghoobzadeh, Gholamreza Ghassem-Sani, Seyed Abolghasem Mirroshandel, Mahbaneh Eshaghzadeh
2012 International Conference on Computational Linguistics  
For this purpose, a corpus of events has been built based on a specific version of ISO-TimeML for Persian.  ...  Existing methods developed for this task are restricted to limited number of languages, and for many other languages including Persian, there has not been any effort yet.  ...  For adjectives, the cases that have been annotated in TimeBank are considered as events. The heads of the predicative complements are also regarded as events.  ...

Supervised Machine Learning Techniques to Detect TimeML Events in French and English [chapter]

Béatrice Arnulphy, Vincent Claveau, Xavier Tannier, Anne Vilnat
2015 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Through the TimeML specifications and TempEval challenges, it has received some attention in recent years. However, no reference result is available for French.  ...  These systems are evaluated on French corpora and compared with state-of-the-art methods on English. The very good results obtained on both languages validate our approach.  ...  The TimeML annotated corpora are called TimeBank: TimeBank 1.2 [19] for English, FR-TimeBank [7] for French, and so on.  ...

An Analysis of Causality between Events and its Relation to Temporal Information

Paramita Mirza, Sara Tonelli
2014 International Conference on Computational Linguistics  
In this work we present an annotation framework to capture causality between events, inspired by TimeML, and a language resource covering both temporal and causal relations.  ...  The evaluation and analysis of the system's performance provides an insight into explicit causality in text and the connection between temporal and causal relations.  ...  We also thank Rachele Sprugnoli and Manuela Speranza for their contribution in defining the annotation guidelines.  ...
