In this article, we have studied the possibility of applying Borda and Fuzzy Borda voting schemes to combine semantic role labeling systems. To better select the correct semantic role, among those provided by different experts, we have introduced two measures: the first one calculates the overlap between labeled sentences, whereas the second one adds different scoring levels depending on the verbs that have been parsed.

    ABSTRACT: In this paper we discuss the integration of different GIR systems by means of a fuzzy Borda method for result fusion. Two of the systems, the one by the Universidad Politécnica de Valencia and the one of the Universidad of Jaén participated to the GeoCLEF task under the name TextMess. The proposed result fusion method takes as input the document lists returned by the different systems and returns a document list where the documents are ranked according to the fuzzy Borda voting scheme. The obtained results show that the fusion method allows to improve the results of the component systems, although the fusion is not optimal, because it is effective only if the components return a similar set of relevant documents.

    ABSTRACT: In this paper we consider a fuzzy variant of the Borda count taking into account agents' intensities of preference. This fuzzy Borda count is obtained by means of score gradation and normalization processes from its original pattern. The advantages of the Borda count hold, and are even improved, providing an appropriate scheme in collective decision making. In addition, both classic and fuzzy Borda counts are related to approval voting, establishing a unified framework from distinct points of view. Copyright 2002 by Kluwer Academic Publishers

    ABSTRACT: In this paper we describe the CoNLL-2005 shared task on Semantic Role La-beling. We introduce the specification and goals of the task, describe the data sets and evaluation methods, and present a general overview of the 19 systems that have con-tributed to the task, providing a compara-tive description and results.
