Abstract

It is well known that one of the greatest hurdles in automatically processing technical documentation is the large amount of specific terminology that characterizes these domains. Terminology poses two major challenges to the developers of NLP applications: how to identify domain specific terms in the documents and how to efficiently process them. In this paper we will present methodologies that we have used to extract and bootstrap a terminological database and its usage in an answer extraction system.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
