On the Language-specificity of Multilingual BERT and the Impact of Fine-tuning

1 code implementation EMNLP (BlackboxNLP) 2021 Marc Tanti, Lonneke van der Plas, Claudia Borg, Albert Gatt

Recent work has shown evidence that the knowledge acquired by multilingual BERT (mBERT) has two components: a language-specific and a language-neutral one.

Annotating for Hate Speech: The MaNeCo Corpus and Some Input from Critical Discourse Analysis

no code implementations LREC 2020 Stavros Assimakopoulos, Rebecca Vella Muskat, Lonneke van der Plas, Albert Gatt

In view of this, we suggest a multi-layer annotation scheme, which is pilot-tested against a binary +/- hate speech classification and appears to yield higher inter-annotator agreement.

The societal and ethical relevance of computational creativity

no code implementations23 Jul 2020 Michele Loi, Eleonora Viganò, Lonneke van der Plas

In this paper, we provide a philosophical account of the value of creative systems for individuals and society.


A blindspot of AI ethics: anti-fragility in statistical prediction

no code implementations21 Jun 2020 Michele Loi, Lonneke van der Plas

With this paper, we aim to put an issue on the agenda of AI ethics that in our view is overlooked in the current discourse.

Learning to Predict Novel Noun-Noun Compounds

1 code implementation WS 2019 Prajit Dhar, Lonneke van der Plas

We introduce temporally and contextually-aware models for the novel task of predicting unseen but plausible concepts, as conveyed by noun-noun compounds in a time-stamped corpus.

Measuring the compositionality of noun-noun compounds over time

1 code implementation WS 2019 Prajit Dhar, Janis Pagel, Lonneke van der Plas

We present work in progress on the temporal progression of compositionality in noun-noun compounds.

Face2Text: Collecting an Annotated Image Description Corpus for the Generation of Rich Face Descriptions

1 code implementation LREC 2018 Albert Gatt, Marc Tanti, Adrian Muscat, Patrizia Paggio, Reuben A. Farrugia, Claudia Borg, Kenneth P. Camilleri, Mike Rosner, Lonneke van der Plas

To gain a better understanding of the variation we find in face description and the possible issues that this may raise, we also conducted an annotation study on a subset of the corpus.

Evaluating Compound Splitters Extrinsically with Textual Entailment

no code implementations ACL 2017 Glorianna Jagfeld, Patrick Ziering, Lonneke van der Plas

Traditionally, compound splitters are evaluated intrinsically on gold-standard data or extrinsically on the task of statistical machine translation.

The Grammar of English Deverbal Compounds and their Meaning

no code implementations WS 2016 Gianina Iord{\u{a}}chioaia, Lonneke van der Plas, Glorianna Jagfeld

We present an interdisciplinary study on the interaction between the interpretation of noun-noun deverbal compounds (DCs; e. g., task assignment) and the morphosyntactic properties of their deverbal heads in English.
