PEAS, the first instantiation of a comparative framework for evaluating parsers of French

V. Gendner, G. Illouz, M. Jardino, L. Monceaux, P. Paroubek, I. Robba, A. Vilnat
2003 Proceedings of the tenth conference on European chapter of the Association for Computational Linguistics - EACL '03   unpublished
This paper presents PEAS, the first comparative evaluation framework for parsers of French whose annotation formalism allows the annotation of both constituents and functional relations.  ...  A test corpus containing an assortment of different text types has been built and part of it has been manually annotated.  ...  Therefore, the need for a complete comparative evaluation framework -including a pivot annotation formalism, a reference treebank, evaluation metrics and the associated software -is increasing.  ...

Automatic Acquisition and Expansion of Hypernym Links

Emmanuel Morin, Christian Jacquemin
2004 Language Resources and Evaluation  
This paper proposes to bridge the gap between term acquisition and thesaurus construction by offering a framework for automatic structuring of multi-word candidate terms with the help of corpus-based links  ...  Recent developments in computational terminology call for the design of multiple and complementary tools for the acquisition, the structuring and the exploitation of terminological data.  ...  Process The Prométhée system is now evaluated for the semantic acquisition of hypernym relationships from the French [AGRO-ALIM] corpus.  ...

Counterfactual Memorization in Neural Language Models [article]

Chiyuan Zhang, Daphne Ippolito, Katherine Lee, Matthew Jagielski, Florian Tramèr, Nicholas Carlini
2021 arXiv   pre-print
We further estimate the influence of each training example on the validation set and on generated texts, and show that this can provide direct evidence of the source of memorization at test time.  ...  In this paper, we provide a principled perspective inspired by a taxonomy of human memory in Psychology.  ...  To mitigate the issue, we implemented a hash based subset sampling predicate that can be evaluated efficiently for each example, and (approximately) select a random subset of a specified size.  ...

What exactly is wrong and why? Tutorial Dialogue for Intelligent CALL Systems

Manfred Klenner, Henriëtte Visser
2013
The system enters in a tutorial dialogue with the student, where each explanation (dialogue) step is based on the principles of a single tutorial strategy and a dynamic user model.  ...  We introduce a dialogue-based explanation facility for Intelligent CALL (ICALL) Systems.  ...  For example, the students input for the task of accessing the first element of a list x might be: (car x) (where car is the command to access the first element of a list).  ...
