4 papers to be presented at ACL 2022
Four papers from DFKI-NLP authors have been accepted for publication at ACL 2022, the 60th Annual Meeting of the Association for Computational Linguistics. The conference is planned to be a hybrid meeting and will take place in Dublin, Ireland, from May 22nd through May 27th, 2022. One paper is on evaluating pre-trained encoders on the task of low-resource NER across several English and German datasets, the other analyzes relation classification evaluation and suggests that using F1 weightings other than micro-F1 tells us much more about model performance, e.g. on imbalanced datasets. The third paper proposes a novel approach to encode and inject hierarchical structure information explicitly into an extractive, transformer-based summarization model. The final paper present a study that aims to uncover relevant perceptual quality dimensions for one type of machine-generated text, that is, Machine Translation. We conducted a crowd-sourcing survey in the style of a Semantic Differential to collect attribute ratings for German MT outputs.
