Linking Data, Ontologies and Distributional Models for the Representation of Lexical Meaning Workshop in connection with the visiting period of Professor Martha Palmer at the University of Florence

Florence - June 9, 2017 Venue: University of Florence, Piazza Savonarola 1, Florence (Italy)

Exciting developments in distributional semantics are revolutionizing the field of computational lexical semantics. Current conferences abound in approaches to word sense disambiguation and semantic role labeling that use word embeddings and/or deep learning to present striking performance improvements. Moreover, lexical resources are day by day increasing in the direction of a multilingual and multimodal enrichment, creating ontologies which represent lexical meaning integrating data from different languages with images and videos. In this workshop, we wish to explore these recent advances in the context of NLP tasks that rely directly on rich semantic representations, and that aim to push the boundaries of our ability to reason with text-based inferences and with a multimodal integrated perspective on the representation of lexical meaning.

Attendance to the workshop is free, however registration is appreciated to arrange spaces and materials. For registration and information please write to: alessandro.panunzi at unifi.it <mailto:alessandro.panunzi at unifi.it>
