Assessing MCR Discussion Usefulness Using Semantic Similarity

Thai Pangsakulyanont, Patanamon Thongtanunam, Daniel Port, Hajimu Iida
2014 2014 6th International Workshop on Empirical Software Engineering in Practice  
We propose to utilize semantic similarity as a practical, costefficient, and empirically assurable approach for assisting with the manual usefulness assessment of MCR comments.  ...  Recent studies indicate there is a positive relationship between the number of review comments and code quality.  ...  We find these thresholds by selecting s t , d t values that maximize the F-measure [6] , [7] which is a performance measure for a binary classification that compromises trade-offs in accuracy of classification  ...

A hierarchical knowledge-based approach for retrieving similar medical images described with semantic annotations

Camille Kurtz, Christopher F. Beaulieu, Sandy Napel, Daniel L. Rubin
2014 Journal of Biomedical Informatics  
It is based on two main steps: (1) annotation of the images with semantic terms extracted from an ontology, and (2) evaluation of the similarity of image pairs by computing the similarity between the terms  ...  However, the semantic gap between low-level image features and their high level semantics may impair the system performances.  ...  Acknowledgments The authors would like to thank Jarrett Rosenberg for his useful help on statistical evaluations.  ...

Here, we denote a concept of Controllable Length Control (CLC) for the trade-off between length control capacity and semantic accuracy of the language generation model.  ...  In this paper, we propose two reinforcement learning (RL) methods to adjust the trade-off between length control capacity and semantic accuracy of length control models.  ...  Therefore, it makes sense to research the control of trade-off between LC capacity and sentence quality, which we called controllable length control (CLC).  ...
