  • Dessì, Roberto; Bevilacqua, Michele; Gualdoni, Eleonora; Rakotonirina, Nathanael Carraz; Franzon, Francesca; Baroni, Marco (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2023)
    Neural captioners are typically trained to mimic humangenerated references without optimizing for any specific communication goal, leading to problems such as the generation of vague captions. In this paper, we show ...
  • Bel Rafecas, Núria; Koster, C. H. A.; Villegas, Marta (Springer, 2003)
    This article deals with the problem of Cross-Lingual Text Categorization (CLTC), which arises when documents in different languages must be classified according to the same classification tree. We describe practical and ...
  • Zevallos, Rodolfo; Bel Rafecas, Núria; Cámbara Ruiz, Guillermo; Farrús, Mireia; Luque, Jordi (International Speech Communication Association (ISCA), 2022)
    Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR) is a key element in new services that helps users to interact with an automated system. Deep learning methods have made it possible to deploy systems with word error rates below 5% for ...
  • Prieto Vives, Pilar, 1965-; Cravotta, Alice; Kushch, Olga; Rohrer, Patrick Louis; Vilà-Giménez, Ingrid (International Speech Communication Association (ISCA), 2018)
    In this paper, we advance a comprehensive gesture labelling proposal which highlights the independence of the prosodic and semantic properties of different gesture types and at the same time challenges a simplistic definition ...
  • Gulordava, Kristina; Brochhagen, Thomas; Boleda, Gemma (Cognitive Science Society, 2020)
    Children’s tendency to associate novel words with novel referents has been taken to reflect a bias toward mutual exclusivity. This tendency may be advantageous both as (1) an ad-hoc referent selection heuristic to single ...
  • Llach, Sílvia (Universitat de Girona, 2010)
  • Arumí Ribas, Marta; Cañada Pujols, Maria Dolors (Generalitat de Catalunya. Departament de Cultura. Direcció General de Política Lingüística., 2004)
    Des de ja fa uns quants anys, a la Facultat de Traducció i Interpretació de la Universitat Pompeu Fabra apliquem un procediment didàctic que consisteix principalment a alternar les fases d’ensenyament presencial amb les ...
  • Castellà, Josep M.; Aparicio Terrasa, Helena (Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, 2007)
    Esta comunicación explora las transformaciones que genera en el discurso docente universitario la introducción de la herramienta multimodal PowerPoint, a partir de un estudio descriptivo de su utilización en una asignatura ...
  • Boleda, Gemma; Gupta, Abhijeet; Padó, Sebastian (ACL (Association for Computational Linguistics), 2017)
    Word embeddings are supposed to provide easy access to semantic relations such as “male of” (man–woman). While this claim has been investigated for concepts, little is known about the distributional behavior of relations ...
  • Boleda, Gemma; Bernardi, Raffaella; Fernández, Raquel; Paperno, Denis (ACL (Association for Computational Linguistics), 2015)
    In this position paper we argue that an adequate semantic model must account for language in use, taking into account how discourse context affects the meaning of words and larger linguistic units. Distributional semantic ...
  • Boleda, Gemma; Gupta, Abhijeet; Baroni, Marco; Padó, Sebastian (ACL (Association for Computational Linguistics), 2015)
    Distributional methods have proven to excel at capturing fuzzy, graded aspects of meaning (Italy is more similar to Spain than to Germany). In contrast, it is difficult to extract the values of more specific attributes of ...
  • Aina, Laura; Liao, Xixian; Boleda, Gemma; Westera, Matthijs (ACL (Association for Computational Linguistics), 2021)
    It is often posited that more predictable parts of a speaker’s meaning tend to be made less explicit, for instance using shorter, less informative words. Studying these dynamics in the domain of referring expressions has ...
  • Westera, Matthijs; Boleda, Gemma (ACL (Association for Computational Linguistics), 2019)
    Distributional semantics has had enormous empirical success in Computational Linguistics and Cognitive Science in modeling various semantic phenomena, such as semantic similarity, and distributional models are widely used ...
  • Alarcón Martínez, Rodrigo; Sierra Martínez, Gerardo; Bach, Carme, 1971- (Springer, 2009)
    Terminological work aims to identify knowledge about terms in specialised texts in order to compile dictionaries, glossaries or ontologies. Searching for definitions about the terms that terminographers intend to define ...
  • Alarcón Martínez, Rodrigo; Sierra Martínez, Gerardo; Bach, Carme, 1971- (Universitat Pompeu Fabra. Institut Universitari de Lingüística Aplicada (IULA), 2008)
    In this paper we present a pattern-based approach to the automatic extraction of definitional knowledge from specialised Spanish texts. Our methodology is based on the search of definitional verbal patterns to extract ...
  • Baroni, Marco; Lenci, Alessandro (ACL (Association for Computational Linguistics), 2009)
    Mitchell et al. (2008) demonstrated that corpus-extracted models of semantic knowledge can predict neural activation patterns recorded using fMRI. This could be a very powerful technique for evaluating conceptual models ...
  • Toral, Antonio; Poch, Marc; Pecina, Pavel; Thurmair, Gregor (European Association for Machine Translation, 2012)
    This paper presents a novel efficiencybased evaluation of sentence and word aligners. This assessment is critical in order to make a reliable use in industrial scenarios. The evaluation shows that the resources/nrequired ...
  • Kharitonov, Eugene; Baroni, Marco (ACL (Association for Computational Linguistics), 2020)
    Studies of discrete languages emerging when neural agents communicate to solve a joint task often look for evidence of compositional structure. This stems for the expectation that such a structure would allow languages ...
