Extracting Meronymy Relationships From Domain- Specific, Textual Corporate Databases
Source: University of Groningen
Various techniques for learning meronymy relationships from opendomain corpora exist. However, extracting meronymy relationships from domain-specific, textual corporate databases has been overlooked, despite numerous application opportunities particularly in domains like product development and/or customer service. These domains also pose new scientific challenges, such as the absence of elaborate knowledge resources, compromising the performance of supervised meronymy-learning algorithms. Furthermore, the domain-specific terminology of corporate texts makes it difficult to select appropriate seeds for minimally-supervised meronymy-learning algorithms.
