Named Entity Recognition with Bidirectional LSTM-CNNs

TACL 2016 zalandoresearch/flair

Named entity recognition is a challenging task that has traditionally required large amounts of knowledge in the form of feature engineering and lexicons to achieve high performance.

Assessing the Ability of LSTMs to Learn Syntax-Sensitive Dependencies

TACL 2016 yoavg/bert-syntax

The success of long short-term memory (LSTM) neural networks in language processing is typically attributed to their ability to capture long-distance statistical regularities.

Optimizing Statistical Machine Translation for Text Simplification

TACL 2016 cocoxu/simplification

Most recent sentence simplification systems use basic machine translation models to learn lexical and syntactic paraphrases from a manually simplified parallel corpus.

ABCNN: Attention-Based Convolutional Neural Network for Modeling Sentence Pairs

TACL 2016 Leputa/CIKM-AnalytiCup-2018

(ii) We propose three attention schemes that integrate mutual influence between sentences into CNN; thus, the representation of each sentence takes into consideration its counterpart.

A Latent Variable Model Approach to PMI-based Word Embeddings

TACL 2016 PrincetonML/SemanticVector

Semantic word embeddings represent the meaning of a word via a vector, and are created by diverse methods.

Learning to Understand Phrases by Embedding the Dictionary

TACL 2016 northanapon/dict-definition

Distributional models that learn rich semantic word representations are a success story of recent NLP research.

Simple and Accurate Dependency Parsing Using Bidirectional LSTM Feature Representations

TACL 2016 ITUnlp/UniParse

The BiLSTM is trained jointly with the parser objective, resulting in very effective feature extractors for parsing.

Reassessing the Goals of Grammatical Error Correction: Fluency Instead of Grammaticality

TACL 2016 keisks/reassess-gec

The field of grammatical error correction (GEC) has grown substantially in recent years, with research directed at both evaluation metrics and improved system performance against those metrics.

Unsupervised Part-Of-Speech Tagging with Anchor Hidden Markov Models

TACL 2016 karlstratos/anchor

We tackle unsupervised part-of-speech (POS) tagging by learning hidden Markov models (HMMs) that are particularly well-suited for the problem.
