Comparison of Methods to Assess Similarity between Phrases [chapter]

Renzo Angles, Valeria Araya, Jesus Concha, Rodrigo Paredes
2014 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We study the problem of similarity between phrases. To do so, we study three similarity methods. The first one considers the commonalities and differences of the two phrases.  ...  The third one considers the sequentiality of the phrases and is resistant to phrases with repeated words.  ...  we can improve the similarity assessment between the phrases.  ...

Richard W. Hedley, Brenton G. Cooper
2016 PLoS ONE  
An assessment of the time homogeneity of syntax showed that transition probabilities between phrase types are largely stable over time, but that there was some evidence for modest changes in syntax within  ...  I compare their song sequences to three candidate models of varying levels of complexity-zero-order, first-order and second-order Markov models-and employ novel methods to interpolate between these three  ...  Acknowledgments The author would like to thank Dr. Charles Taylor, Dr. Martin Cody, and Dr.  ...

Leveraging Preposition Ambiguity to Assess Compositional Distributional Models of Semantics

Samuel Ritter, Cotie Long, Denis Paperno, Marco Baroni, Matthew Botvinick, Adele Goldberg
2015 Proceedings of the Fourth Joint Conference on Lexical and Computational Semantics  
We present a new method for assessing the degree to which CDSM capture semantic interactions that dissociates the influences of lexical and compositional information.  ...  Complex interactions among the meanings of words are important factors in the function that maps word meanings to phrase meanings.  ...  Relation to Past Work This approach to CDSM assessment is similar to a previous method wherein polysemous verbs are paired with disambiguating nouns in transitive or intransitive verb phrases.  ...

PMCVec: Distributed Phrase Representation for Biomedical Text Processing

Zelalem Gero, Joyce Ho
2019 Journal of Biomedical Informatics: X  
A new unsupervised method has been proposed to collect over 700,000 common phrases that may be useful for biomedical NLP from PubMed articles [20] .  ...  Learning a distributed phrase and word embeddings have been shown to be effective on a general, non-domain specific corpus [26] . Yet, one of the key challenges is to identify useful phrases.  ...  The similarity between word pairs was assessed by 8 medical experts.  ...

Melodic Similarity: Looking For A Good Abstraction Level

Maarten Grachten, Josep Lluís Arcos, Ramón López De Mántaras
2004 Zenodo  
CONCLUSIONS AND FUTURE WORK In this paper we have proposed a new way of assessing melodic similarity and compared it with existing methods for melodic similarity assessment, using a dataset of 124 jazz  ...  Another criterion to judge the behavior of the measures is to see how they assess distances between phrases from the same song versus phrases from different songs.  ...

Cross level semantic similarity: an evaluation framework for universal measures of similarity

David Jurgens, Mohammad Taher Pilehvar, Roberto Navigli
2015 Language Resources and Evaluation  
We describe the annotation process and its challenges, including a comparison with crowdsourcing, and identify the factors that make the dataset a rigorous assessment of a method's quality.  ...  CLSS data contains a rich mixture of pairs, spanning from paragraphs to word senses to fully evaluate similarity measures that are capable of comparing items of any type.  ...  Acknowledgments The authors gratefully acknowledge the support of the ERC Starting Grant MultiJEDI No. 259234.  ...

On Some Pitfalls in Automatic Evaluation and Significance Testing for MT

Stefan Riezler, John T. Maxwell III
2005 Annual Meeting of the Association for Computational Linguistics  
We point out a pitfall of randomly assessing significance in multiple pairwise comparisons, and conclude with a recommendation to combine NIST with approximate randomization, at more stringent rejection  ...  In a discriminative reranking experiment for phrase-based SMT we show that the NIST metric is more sensitive than BLEU or F-score despite their incorporation of aspects of fluency or meaning adequacy into  ...  One possibility to reduce the likelihood that one ore more of differences assessed in pairwise comparisons is spurious is to run the comparisons at a more stringent per-comparison rejection level.  ...

Comparative Study Between Two Swarm Intelligence Automatic Text Summaries

Mohamed Amine Boudia, Reda Mohamed Hamou, Abdelmalek Amine
2018 International Journal of Applied Metaheuristic Computing  
While the optimization uses the bio-inspired approach to perform the results of the previous step, the objective function of the optimization is to maximize the sum of similarity between phrases of the  ...  The authors use two techniques of extraction, one after the other: scoring of phrases and similarity that aims to eliminate redundant phrases without losing the theme of the text.  ...  It concludes with a comparison of four methods' using the same corpus, this comparison is based on execution time, confusion matrix for each method, that will be used to construct a podium according to  ...

Text Similarity in Vector Space Models: A Comparative Study [article]

Omid Shahmirzadi, Adam Lugowski, Kenneth Younge
2018 arXiv   pre-print
Contrary to expectations, the added computational cost of text embedding methods is justified only when: 1) the target text is condensed; and 2) the similarity comparison is trivial.  ...  Unexpectedly, extensions to the TFIDF method, such as adding noun phrases or calculating term weights incrementally, were not helpful in our context.  ...  Specifically, our evaluation test requires: 1. a benchmark indicator of similarity as the ground truth, 2. a way to calculate a similarity score between vectors, 3. an evaluation metric to assess the accuracy  ...
