Exploring the Value of Personalized Word Embeddings

no code implementations COLING 2020 Charles Welch, Jonathan K. Kummerfeld, Verónica Pérez-Rosas, Rada Mihalcea

Our results show that a subset of words belonging to specific psycholinguistic categories tend to vary more in their representations across users and that combining generic and personalized word embeddings yields the best performance, with a 4. 7% relative reduction in perplexity.

Biased TextRank: Unsupervised Graph-Based Content Extraction

no code implementations COLING 2020 Ashkan Kazemi, Verónica Pérez-Rosas, Rada Mihalcea

We introduce Biased TextRank, a graph-based content extraction method inspired by the popular TextRank algorithm that ranks text spans according to their importance for language processing tasks and according to their relevance to an input "focus."

Compositional Demographic Word Embeddings

1 code implementation EMNLP 2020 Charles Welch, Jonathan K. Kummerfeld, Verónica Pérez-Rosas, Rada Mihalcea

Word embeddings are usually derived from corpora containing text from many individuals, thus leading to general purpose representations rather than individually personalized representations.
