|Title:||Scaling up word sense disambiguation via parallel texts||Authors:||Chan, Y.S.
|Issue Date:||2005||Citation:||Chan, Y.S.,Ng, H.T. (2005). Scaling up word sense disambiguation via parallel texts. Proceedings of the National Conference on Artificial Intelligence 3 : 1037-1042. ScholarBank@NUS Repository.||Abstract:||A critical problem faced by current supervised WSD systems is the lack of manually annotated training data. Tackling this data acquisition bottleneck is crucial, in order to build high-accuracy and wide-coverage WSD systems. In this paper, we show that the approach of automatically gathering training examples from parallel texts is scalable to a large set of nouns. We conducted evaluation on the nouns of SENSEVAL-2 English all-words task, using fine-grained sense scoring. Our evaluation shows that training on examples gathered from 680MB of parallel texts achieves accuracy comparable to the best system of SENSEVAL-2 English all-words task, and significantly outperforms the baseline of always choosing sense 1 of WordNet.
