Knowledge Graph (KG) completion has been excessively studied with a massive number of models proposed for the Link Prediction (LP) task. The main limitation of such models is their insensitivity to time. Indeed, the temporal aspect of stored facts is often ignored. To this end, more and more works consider time as a parameter to complete KGs. In th...

The task of verbalization of RDF triples has known a growth in popularity due to the rising ubiquity of Knowledge Bases (KBs). The formalism of RDF triples is a simple and efficient way to store facts at a large scale. However, its abstract representation makes it difficult for humans to interpret. For this purpose, the WebNLG challenge aims at pro...

This paper describes our recursive system for SemEval-2019 \textit{ Task 1: Cross-lingual Semantic Parsing with UCCA}. Each recursive step consists of two parts. We first perform semantic parsing using a sequence tagger to estimate the probabilities of the UCCA categories in the sentence. Then, we apply a decoding policy which interprets these prob...

We present a spoken conversational question answering proof of concept that is able to answer questions about general knowledge from Wikidata. The dialogue component does not only orchestrate various components but also solve coreferences and ellipsis.
Conference Paper

For the purpose of POS tagging noisy user-generated text, should normalization be handled as a preliminary task or is it possible to handle misspelled words directly in the POS tagging model? We propose in this paper a combined approach where some errors are normalized before tagging, while a Gated Recurrent Unit deep neural network based tagger ha...

Le corpus CALOR-Frame est un corpus annoté en cadres sémantiques, constitué de textes encyclopédiques dans le domaine de l'Histoire et produit conjointement par l'Université d'Aix-Marseille et Orange Labs. La constitution de cette ressource s'inscrit dans le cadre général de la recherche d’information avec pour objectif de favoriser l'accès aux con...

Le traitement de l’ambiguïté est un enjeu important pour l’amélioration des performances d’un système de recherche d’information (RI). Les travaux dans ce domaine sont focalisés sur le traitement de l’ambiguïté lexicale par recours à des dictionnaires ou, en recherche d’information multilingue, à des corpus alignés. Mais l’inadéquation de dictionna...
Article
In this article we describe the use of Natural Language Processing platform to inter-pred user queries to be fed into a question-answering system. The advantage of this system is threefold: first, we are able to identify only those requests which correspond to factual questions for which the engine has a precise answer; second, error correction is...

Semantic Web technology is being increasingly applied in a large spectrum of applications in which domain knowledge is conceptualized and formalized (e.g., by means of an ontology) in order to support diversified and automated knowledge processing (e.g., reasoning) performed by a machine. Moreover, through an optimal combination of (cognitive) huma...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Ontologies and natural languages are complementary. Whereas ontologies are used to model knowledge formally, natural language is primarily used by users to communicate with ontology based systems. In order to transform information or queries in natural language into valid ontological expressions, the meaning of natural language entities have to be...

Ces travaux présentent une extension des représentations formelles pour la sémantique, de l'outil de traitement automatique des langues de Orange Labs1 . Nous abordons ici uniquement des questions relatives à la construction des représentations sémantiques, dans le cadre de l'analyse linguistique. Afin d'obtenir des représentations plus fines de la s...

This article describes a modular & multilingual NLP platform, which is enriched by a system of multicriteria decision-aid. Further we describe the linguistic data used by this platform as well as the applications based on its technology.
Conference Paper
Full-text available
In this paper we present an approach that combines multimedia reasoning and natural language processing for the semantic integration of automatic and manual image annotations based on domain ontologies. We discuss how to apply natural language processing to transform natural language descriptions and queries into an ontological representation that...

aceMedia is a 4 year EC part-funded FP6 Integrated Project, ending in December 2007. The project has developed tools to enable users to manage and share both personal and purchased content across PC, STB and mobile platforms. Knowledge-based analysis and ontologies have been successfully exploited in an end-to-end system to enable automated semanti...

Natural language parsing is conceived to be a procedure of disambiguation, which successively reduces an initially totally ambiguous structural representation towards a single interpretation. Graded constraints are used as means to express wellformedness conditions of dioeerent strength and to decide which partial structures are locally least prefe...

this paper is to present and to demonstrate the application of a computer software system creating and maintaining a dictionary of the Chechen and German languages. Currently Chechen language resources can usually only be accessed through the medium of Russian. This may lead to problems especially for linguists who only have a restricted knowledge...
