Isao Goto, Masao Utiyama, Eiichiro Sumita, Akihiro Tamura, Sadao Kurohashi
Article No.: 2
DOI: 10.1145/2537128

This article proposes a new distortion model for phrase-based statistical machine translation. In decoding, a distortion model estimates the source word position to be translated next (subsequent position; SP) given the last translated source word...

Cross-Lingual Annotation Projection for Weakly-Supervised Relation Extraction
Seokhwan Kim, Minwoo Jeong, Jonghoon Lee, Gary Geunbae Lee
Article No.: 3
DOI: 10.1145/2529994

Although researchers have conducted extensive studies on relation extraction in the last decade, statistical systems based on supervised learning are still limited, because they require large amounts of training data to achieve high performance...

Arabic Text Categorization Based on Arabic Wikipedia
Adnan Yahya, Ali Salhi
