Practical Session

Enhance hypernym detection to provide better results.

  • Download prepared scripts and data
  • Unzip, cd ia161-hyper and run ./
  • If you have trouble with encoding, use PYTHONIOENCODING=UTF-8 ./
  • The script reads file vstup.txt (each line is word|definition) and outputs hypernym for each word.
  • Default approach is naive: first noun in definition is hypernym
  • majka gives noun (k1) to some adjectives (k2), deal with this to improve results
  • Update the find_hyper() function in to provide better results.
  • Upload updated script plus the output.
  • Gold standard to evaluate your result: gold.txt
