Automatic Extraction of Compositional Matrix-Space Models of Language

[go to overview]
Shima Asaadi

Learning word representations in distributional semantic models to capture the semantics and compositionality of natural language is a central research area of computational linguistics. Compositional Matrix-Space Models (CMSMs) introduce a novel word representation alternative to Vector Space Models (VSMs). This talk presents the results of learning Compositional Matrix-Space Models to capture the semantics and compositionality in natural language processing tasks such as sentiment analysis of short phrases. Then, a new semantic relatedness dataset is introduced to evaluate compositional distributional semantic models on capturing semantic composition in language.
