  • Espinosa-Anke, Luis; Camacho-Collados, Jose; Delli Bovi, Claudio; Saggion, Horacio (ACL (Association for Computational Linguistics), 2016)
    Lexical taxonomies are graph-like hierarchical structures that provide a formal representation of knowledge. Most knowledge graphs to date rely on is-a (hypernymic) relations as the backbone of their semantic structure. ...
  • Schmitz, Judith, 1984-; Bartoli, Eleonora; Maffongelli, Laura; Fadiga, Luciano; Sebastián Gallés, Núria; D'Ausilio, Alessandro (Elsevier, 2018)
    Listening to speech has been shown to activate motor regions, as measured by corticobulbar excitability. In this experiment, we explored if motor regions are also recruited during listening to non-native speech, for which ...
  • Segers, Roxane; Rospocher, Marco; Vossen, Piek; Laparra, Egoitz; Rigau Claramunt, German; Minard, Anne-Lyse (ELRA (European Language Resources Association), 2016)
    This paper presents the Event and Implied Situation Ontology (ESO), a manually constructed resource which formalizes the pre and post situations of events and the roles of the entities affected by an event. The ontology ...
  • Lopez de Lacalle, Maddalen; Laparra, Egoitz; Aldabe, Itziar; Rigau Claramunt, German (ELRA (European Language Resources Association), 2016)
    This paper presents the Predicate Matrix 1.3, a lexical resource resulting from the integration of multiple sources of predicate information including FrameNet, VerbNet, PropBank and WordNet. This new version of the ...
  • García-Pablos, Aitor; Cuadros Oller, Montse; Rigau Claramunt, German (ELRA (European Language Resources Association), 2016)
    A key point in Sentiment Analysis is to determine the polarity of the sentiment implied by a certain word or expression. In basic Sentiment Analysis systems this sentiment polarity of the words is accounted and weighted ...
  • Silva Pereira, Silvana; Hindriks, Rikkert; Mühlberg, Stefanie, 1986-; Maris, Eric; van Ede, Freek; Griffa, Alessandra; Hagmann, Patric; Deco, Gustavo (Mary Ann Liebert, Inc, 2017)
    A popular way to analyze resting-state electroencephalography (EEG) and magneto encephalography (MEG) data is to treat them as a functional network in which sensors are identified with nodes and the interaction between ...
  • Gerber, Nicolas; Reyes, Mauricio; Barazzetti, Livia; Kjer, Hans Martin; Vera, Sergio; Stauber, Martin; Mistrik, Pavel; Ceresa, Mario; Mangado, Nerea; Wimmer, Wilhelm; Stark, Thomas; Paulsen, Rasmus; Weber, Stefan; Caversaccio, Marco; González-Ballester, Miguel Ángel (Nature Publishing Group, 2017)
    Understanding the human inner ear anatomy and its internal structures is paramount to advance hearing implant technology. While the emergence of imaging devices allowed researchers to improve understanding of intracochlear ...
  • Glomb, Katharina; Ponce-Alvarez, Adrián; Gilson, Matthieu; Ritter, Petra; Deco, Gustavo (Elsevier, 2017)
    It is well-established that patterns of functional connectivity (FC) - measures of correlated activity between pairs of voxels or regions observed in the human brain using neuroimaging - are robustly expressed in spontaneous ...
  • Agirre, Eneko; Banea, Carmen; Cer, Daniel; Diab, Mona; Gonzalez Agirre, Aitor; Mihalcea, Rada; Rigau Claramunt, German; Wiebe, Janyce (ACL (Association for Computational Linguistics), 2016)
    Semantic Textual Similarity (STS) seeks to measure the degree of semantic equivalence between two snippets of text. Similarity is expressed on an ordinal scale that spans from semantic equivalence to complete ...
  • Agirre, Eneko; Gonzalez Agirre, Aitor; Lopez-Gazpio, Iñigo; Maritxalar, Montserrat; Rigau Claramunt, German; Uria, Larraitz (ACL (Association for Computational Linguistics), 2016)
    The final goal of Interpretable Semantic Textual Similarity (iSTS) is to build systems that explain which are the differences and commonalities between two sentences. The task adds an explanatory level on top of STS, ...
  • Agerri, Rodrigo; Aldabe, Itziar; Laparra, Egoitz; Rigau Claramunt, German; Fokkens, Antske; Huijgen, Paul; Izquierdo Beviá, Rubén; van Erp, Marieke; Vossen, Piek; Minard, Anne-Lyse; Magnini, Bernardo (International Conference on Language Resources and Evaluation (LREC), 2016)
    We describe a novel modular system for cross-lingual event extraction for English, Spanish,, Dutch and Italian texts. The system consists of a ready-to-use modular set of advanced multilingual Natural Language Processing ...
  • Espinosa-Anke, Luis; Tello, Jorge; Pardo, Alberto; Medrano, Ignacio; Ureña, Alberto; Salcedo, Ignacio; Saggion, Horacio (Sociedad Española para el Procesamiento del Lenguaje Natural (SEPLN), 2016)
    Terminological databases constitute a fundamental source of information in the medical domain. They are used daily both by practitioners in the area, as well as in academia. Several resources of this kind are available, ...
  • Álvarez de la Granja, María; Gómez Clemente, Xosé María; Gómez Guinovart, Xavier (De Gruyter, 2016)
    This study describes the introduction of verbal idioms in the Galician language version (Galnet) of the semantic network WordNet; a network that does not traditionally include many phraseological units. To enhance Galnet, ...
  • Agerri, Rodrigo; Rigau Claramunt, German (Elsevier, 2016)
    We present a multilingual Named Entity Recognition approach based on a robust and general set of features across languages and datasets. Our system combines shallow local information with clustering semi-supervised features ...
  • Castellví, Quim; Mercadal Cavaller, Borja; Moll, Xavier; Fondevila, Dolors; Andaluz, Anna; Ivorra Cano, Antoni, 1974- (Institute of Physics (IOP), 2017)
    Electroporation based treatments typically consist in applying high voltage dc pulses. As an undesired side effect, these dc pulses cause electrical stimulation of excitable tissues such as motor nerves. In the present in ...
  • Rach, Niklas; Minker, Wolfgang; Ultes, Stefan (ACL (Association for Computational Linguistics), 2017)
    For estimating the Interaction Quality (IQ) in Spoken Dialogue Systems (SDS), the dialogue history is of significant importance. Previous works included this information manually in the form of precomputed temporal features ...
