Predicting Humorousness and Metaphor Novelty with Gaussian Process Preference Learning

Edwin Simpson, Erik-Lân Do Dinh, Tristan Miller, Iryna Gurevych
2019 Proceedings of the 57th Annual Meeting of the Association for Computational Linguistics  
We introduce a Bayesian approach for predicting humorousness and metaphor novelty using Gaussian process preference learning (GPPL), which achieves a Spearman's ρ of 0.56 against gold using word embeddings  ...  To address this, we introduce novel tasks for evaluating the creativeness of language-namely, scoring and ranking text by humorousness and metaphor novelty.  ...  and by the Austrian Science Fund (FWF) under project M 2625-N31.  ...

OFAI-UKP at HAHA@IberLEF2019: Predicting the Humorousness of Tweets Using Gaussian Process Preference Learning [article]

Tristan Miller, Erik-Lân Do Dinh, Edwin Simpson, Iryna Gurevych
2020 arXiv   pre-print
In this paper, we present a probabilistic approach, a variant of Gaussian process preference learning (GPPL), that learns to rank and rate the humorousness of short texts by exploiting human preference  ...  We apply our system, which had previously shown good performance on English-language one-liners annotated with pairwise humorousness annotations, to the Spanish-language data set of the HAHA@IberLEF2019  ...  It employs Gaussian process preference learning, a Bayesian system that learns to rank and rate instances by exploiting pairwise preference judgments.  ...

Computational Curiosity (A Book Draft) [article]

Qiong Wu
2015 arXiv   pre-print
It aims to enhance users' learning experience through providing meaningful interactions with them. Chapter 10 discusses open questions in the research field of computation curiosity.  ...  Chapter 2 reviews the arousal theories of curiosity in psychology and summarizes a general two-step process model for computational curiosity.  ...  Instead of focusing on a person's preferences, curiosity is more related to the novelty and surprisingness in the environment.  ...

Exercise? I thought you said 'Extra Fries': Leveraging Sentence Demarcations and Multi-hop Attention for Meme Affect Analysis [article]

Shraman Pramanick, Md Shad Akhtar, Tanmoy Chakraborty
2021 arXiv   pre-print
Some of these memes spread rapidly within a very short time-frame, and their virality depends on the novelty of their (textual and visual) content.  ...  Today's Internet is awash in memes as they are humorous, satirical, or ironic which make people laugh.  ...  In order to validate the generalizability of MHA-Meme, we collected and annotated an additional set of 334 memes and checked its performance.  ...

The inherence heuristic: An intuitive means of making sense of the world, and a potential precursor to psychological essentialism

2014 Behavioral and Brain Sciences  
In sum, this article illuminates a basic cognitive process that emerges early in life and is likely to have profound effects on many aspects of human psychology.  ...  By revealing the deep commonalities among the diverse phenomena that fall under its scope, our account is able to generate new insights into these phenomena, as well as new empirical predictions.  ...  Nonetheless the article provides useful insight into the ways in which people overestimate the coherence and completeness of their understanding of the world.  ...
