Composing Byte-Pair Encodings for Morphological Sequence Classification

1 code implementation UDW (COLING) 2020 Adam Ek, Jean-Philippe Bernardy

Byte-pair encodings is a method for splitting a word into sub-word tokens, a language model then assigns contextual representations separately to each of these tokens.

From compositional semantics to Bayesian pragmatics via logical inference

no code implementations ACL (NALOMA, IWCS) 2021 Julian Grove, Jean-Philippe Bernardy, Stergios Chatzikyriakidis

Formal semantics in the Montagovian tradition provides precise meaning characterisations, but usually without a formal theory of the pragmatics of contextual parameters and their sensitivity to background knowledge.

Semantic Classification and Learning Using a Linear Tranformation Model in a Probabilistic Type Theory with Records

no code implementations ReInAct 2021 Staffan Larsson, Jean-Philippe Bernardy

Starting from an existing account of semantic classification and learning from interaction formulated in a Probabilistic Type Theory with Records, encompassing Bayesian inference and learning with a frequentist flavour, we observe some problems with this account and provide an alternative account of classification learning that addresses the observed problems.
