Subject: Coreference solving.
We propose a Master's project open to LTH students in computer science to improve a coreference solver and make it multilingual.
Coreference solving consists in finding sets of mentions in a text, where one set relates to one single entity. Large scale coreference solving has become an integral part of the semantic analysis of text and the identification of entities across documents. Recent evaluations such as in CoNLL 2011 for English have enabled to assess the current state of the art in an impartial way and to spur innovation through the competition it entails. For details see here: http://conll.bbn.com/. At LTH, we have developed a high-performance solver in the context of CoNLL 2011.
The project will start form the existing code and will be twofold:
The Master's thesis will possibly be tied to the next CoNLL 2012 which will deal about coreference solving for English, Chinese, and Arabic.
To carry out the project successfully, the candidate will need very good programming aptitudes as well as a good understanding of natural language processing and some familiarity with machine learning techniques.
