About this book

Collaboratively Constructed Language Resources (CCLRs) such as Wikipedia, Wiktionary, Linked Open Data, and various resources developed using crowdsourcing techniques such as Games with a Purpose and Mechanical Turk have substantially contributed to the research in natural language processing (NLP). Various NLP tasks utilize such resources to substitute for or supplement conventional lexical semantic resources and linguistically annotated corpora. These resources also provide an extensive body of texts from which valuable knowledge is mined. There are an increasing number of community efforts to link and maintain multiple linguistic resources.
 
This book aims offers comprehensive coverage of CCLR-related topics, including their construction, utilization in NLP tasks, and interlinkage and management. Various Bachelor/Master/Ph.D. programs in natural language processing, computational linguistics, and knowledge discovery can use this book both as the main text and as a supplementary reading. The book also provides a valuable reference guide for researchers and professionals for the above topics.

About the authors

Iryna Gurevych leads the UKP Lab in the Department of Computer Science of the Technische Universität Darmstadt (UKP-TUDA) and at the Institute for Educational Research and Educational Information (UKP-DIPF) in Frankfurt, Germany. She holds an endowed Lichtenberg-Chair "Ubiquitous Knowledge Processing" of the Volkswagen Foundation. Her research in NLP primarily concerns applied lexical semantic algorithms, such as computing semantic relatedness of words or paraphrase recognition, and their use to enhance the performance of NLP tasks, such as information retrieval, question answering, or summarization.

Jungi Kim is a postdoctoral researcher at UKP Lab in the Department of Computer Science of the Technische Universität Darmstadt, Germany (UKP-TUDA). His primary research interests are in semantic resources, algorithms, and evaluations for multilingual natural language processing. His previous research includes multilingual sentiment analysis, statistical machine translation, and various NLP topics involving multiple languages, especially East Asian languages.
