Seminar: Luis Nieto Piña — Distributional representations beyond word forms


In this seminar I will talk about my PhD studies: general aims, review of completed and ongoing work, as well as ideas on how to continue.

My work revolves around building semantic representations of linguistic units. Word embeddings have become ubiquitous in Natural Language Processing upstream tasks in the last years. In this project, we ask in which ways restricting representations to word forms limits the capacity of these models, and whether we can avoid this by focusing on representing more complex, less superficial linguistic units. I apply Machine Learning techniques for this purpose, and have worked on several models that learn word sense representations from corpora and lexicons. As a possible line of future research, I propose making use of exciting developments of learning algorithms to try and obtain representations of complex semantic units like multiword expressions.
