Mixed-Level Knowledge Representations and Variable-Depth Inference in Natural Language Processing


Hess, M (1997). Mixed-Level Knowledge Representations and Variable-Depth Inference in Natural Language Processing. International Journal on Artificial Intelligence Tools (IJAIT), 6(4):481-509.

Abstract

A system is described that uses a mixed-level knowledge representation based on standard Horn Clause Logic to represent (part of) the meaning of natural language documents. A variable-depth search strategy is outlined that distinguishes between the different levels of abstraction in the knowledge representation to locate specific passages in the documents. A detailed description of the linguistic aspects of the system is given. Mixed-level representations as well as variable-depth search strategies are applicable in fields outside that of NLP.

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.
