Discriminative Instance Weighting for Domain Adaptation in Statistical Machine Translation
We describe a new approach to SMT adaptation that weights out-of-domain phrase pairs according to their relevance to the target domain, determined by both how similar to it they a...

A Tree Kernel-Based Unified Framework for Chinese Zero Anaphora Resolution
This paper proposes a unified framework for zero anaphora resolution, which can be divided into three sub-tasks: zero anaphor detection, anaphoricity determination and antecedent ...

Confidence in Structured-Prediction Using Confidence-Weighted Models
Confidence-Weighted linear classifiers (CW) and its successors were shown to perform well on binary and multiclass NLP problems. In this paper we extend the CW approach for sequen...

Automatic Keyphrase Extraction via Topic Decomposition
Existing graph-based ranking methods for keyphrase extraction compute a single importance score for each word via a single random walk. Motivated by the fact that both documents a...

A Mixture Model with Sharing for Lexical Semantics
We introduce tiered clustering, a mixture model capable of accounting for varying degrees of shared (context-independent) feature structure, and demonstrate its applicability to i...
