Countering the Effects of Lead Bias in News Summarization via Multi-Stage Training and Auxiliary Losses

no code implementations IJCNLP 2019 Matt Grenander, Yue Dong, Jackie Chi Kit Cheung, Annie Louis

Sentence position is a strong feature for news summarization, since the lead often (but not always) summarizes the key points of the article.

What comes next? Extractive summarization by next-sentence prediction

no code implementations12 Jan 2019 Jingyun Liu, Jackie C. K. Cheung, Annie Louis

Existing approaches to automatic summarization assume that a length limit for the summary is given, and view content selection as an optimization problem to maximize informativeness and minimize redundancy within this budget.

Getting to ``Hearer-old'': Charting Referring Expressions Across Time

no code implementations EMNLP 2018 Ieva Stali{\=u}nait{\.e}, Hannah Rohde, Bonnie Webber, Annie Louis

As entities move from hearer-new (first introduction to the NYT audience) to hearer-old (common knowledge) status, we show empirically that the referring expressions along this trajectory depend on the type of the entity, and exhibit linguistic properties related to becoming common knowledge (e. g., shorter length, less use of appositives, more definiteness).

Deep Learning to Detect Redundant Method Comments

1 code implementation12 Jun 2018 Annie Louis, Santanu Kumar Dash, Earl T. Barr, Charles Sutton

To address this problem, we introduce the notion of comment entailment from code, high entailment indicating that a comment's natural language semantics can be inferred directly from the code.

Deep Dungeons and Dragons: Learning Character-Action Interactions from Role-Playing Game Transcripts

What Makes Writing Great? First Experiments on Article Quality Prediction in the Science Journalism Domain

no code implementations TACL 2013 Annie Louis, Ani Nenkova

We show that the distinction between great and typical articles can be detected fairly accurately, and that the entire spectrum of our features contribute to the distinction.
