Learning to identify animate references

Constantin Orǎsan, Richard Evans
2001 Proceedings of the 2001 workshop on Computational Natural Language Learning - ConLL '01   unpublished
Our evaluation results show that the accuracy of the classification of a noun is around 97% and that animate entities are more difficult to identify than inanimate ones.  ...  In this paper, we present a method for determining the animacy of English nouns using WordNet and machine learning techniques.  ...  Our assumption was that a noun with many animate senses is likely to be used to refer to an animate entity.  ...

(e.g., The vep is crying), but that the speed with which they identify the referents of novel words lagged far behind that for familiar words.  ...  We also offer the first evidence to date that, at both 19- and 24-months, the number of verbs infants know predicts their ability to use known verbs to learn novel nouns.  ...  This research was also supported by a Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada Doctoral Fellowship awarded to B.F. and a National Science Foundation grant (BCS-1023300) to S.R.W.  ...

NP Animacy Identification for Anaphora Resolution

C. Orasan, R. J. Evans
2007 The Journal of Artificial Intelligence Research  
The extrinsic evaluation demonstrates that animacy identification can be beneficial in anaphora resolution, especially in the cases where animate entities are identified with high precision.  ...  The first method is a rule-based one which uses information about the unique beginners in WordNet to classify NPs on the basis of their animacy.  ...  Acknowledgments We would like to thank Laura Hasler for helping us with the annotation process and the three referees for their useful comments which enabled us to improve the paper.  ...

Should Dairy Cattle be Trained to a Virtual Fence System as Individuals or in Groups?

Patricia I. Colusso, Cameron E. F. Clark, Sabrina Lomax
2020 Animals  
Individual training is impractical, therefore, future research should evaluate group training protocols ensuring all cows learn the VF to avoid any adverse impacts on animal welfare.  ...  Cattle are gregarious, so there may be an impact of herd mates on the learning process. To evaluate this, a VF was set 30 m down one of three test paddocks with a feed attractant 70 m past the VF.  ...  Additionally, the role of social facilitation on individual cow learning and how to utilise this for effective animal training should be identified.  ...

The involvement of Type II Neuregulin-1 in rat visuospatial learning and memory

Adam R. Taylor, Sara B. Taylor, James I. Koenig
2012 Neuroscience Letters  
Nrg1 Tn rats committed more reference and working memory errors in this test. These results indicate that decreased Type II NRG1 in the brain may lead to deficits in visuospatial learning and memory.  ...  Here, we have utilized a rat model (Nrg1 Tn ), which is hypomorphic for the neuregulin-1 (Nrg1) gene, to test whether reduced Type II NRG1 in the rat brain leads to cognitive deficits relevant to schizophrenia  ...  Thus it was possible for animals to use either spatial or visual cues (or a combination) to learn the location of the water.  ...

2016 Language Learning and Development  
The same is true for resolving temporarily ambiguous phrases, and reference resolution; listeners prefer to identify the communicative intentions of the speaker as quickly as possible, never holding open  ...  This finding suggests young children do not store multiple possible meanings from a single word occurrence, but rather restrict learning to what they deemed to be the unique referent of the novel word  ...  Acknowledgments Author notes We wish to thank Lucia Pozzan for helpful comments on this manuscript.  ...
