1 JRC-Ispra, , Slide 1 Multilingual text analysis applications based on automatic Eurovoc indexing Ralf Steinberger Addressing the Language Barrier Problem in the Enlarged EU Automatic Eurovoc Descriptor Assignment JRC Workshop, Ispra, 16/17 September 2004

2 JRC-Ispra, , Slide 2 Applications mentioned so far Thesaurus indexing (summarise main concepts of document) –Fully automatic –Interactive –Monolingual and cross-lingual Document retrieval –Monolingual and cross-lingual Eurovoc indexing can be used for MUCH MORE …

3 JRC-Ispra, , Slide 3 Main goals of JRCs Language Technology (LT) activity Gather potentially user-relevant documents Analyse texts in various languages –extract information from texts (Eurovoc) –identify similarity between documents (Eurovoc) –Classify documents (Eurovoc) Visualise contents –of individual documents (Eurovoc) –of whole document collections (Eurovoc)

4 JRC-Ispra, , Slide 4 Eurovoc indexing as part of a tool set

5 JRC-Ispra, , Slide 5 (Cross-lingual) document similarity calculation English Text English Text Resolution on radio- active waste Spanish Text Resolución sobre los residuos radioactivos monolingual

6 JRC-Ispra, , Slide 6 (Multilingual) text classification Most current approaches to text classification are monolingual Category 1Category 2 Category 3 Es Fr Es Text classification, via Eurovoc, is multilingual

8 JRC-Ispra, , Slide 8 Translation Spotting Why? To test document similarity calculation To compile a collection of parallel texts (for the training and testing of other multilingual text analysis applications) To detect cross-lingual document plagiarism

9 JRC-Ispra, , Slide 9 Translation Spotting - Results Task: find Spanish translations of English source document in a parallel text collection DS considering the length of documents DS correcting the monolingual bias (83%) Simple document similarity (DS)

10 JRC-Ispra, , Slide 10 To organise unknown document collections Algorithm: –Find pairs of texts that are most similar –Group them in one cluster, repeat the operation until only one cluster remains (Multilingual) clustering of documents 90% 80% 75% 40% 10%

11 JRC-Ispra, , Slide 11 Building a (multilingual) cluster tree

12 JRC-Ispra, , Slide 12 Application to (multilingual) news analysis EMM system in JRCs Web Technology sector retrieves about 20,000 news articles per day in ~20 languages (4000 articles in English) ( Cluster related news stories and identify duplicates ( news topic identification ) Identify keywords, peoples names, place names, main sentences ( information extraction ) Find related news stories over time ( news topic tracking ) Find related news stories in other languages ( cross-lingual topic tracking mainly via Eurovoc and place names )

13 JRC-Ispra, , Slide 13 Detection of the major news of the day (EMM)

14 JRC-Ispra, , Slide 14 Establish Links to Related News over time

15 JRC-Ispra, , Slide 15 Establish links to related news in other languages

16 JRC-Ispra, , Slide 16 Subject-specific summarisation (1) Title: "Resolution on the 10th anniversary of the Chernobyl accident" Eurovoc descriptors:

17 JRC-Ispra, , Slide 17 Subject-specific summarisation (2) Eurovoc descriptors:

18 JRC-Ispra, , Slide 18 Further JRC LT applications Recognition and translation of: –Place names; + visualisation –Peoples names; + retrieval of images and further information –Dates –Products Recognition of text language

19 JRC-Ispra, , Slide 19 Place name recognition / Cross-lingual display

20 JRC-Ispra, , Slide 20 Place name recognition / Visualisation 18 references (Boston, American, America, New York) 11 references (Vietnam) 5 references (Iraq) + 1 reference to Sweden (Andre Heinz(…) Swedish based environmental consultant)

21 JRC-Ispra, , Slide 21 Place name recognition / Disambiguation Requires disambiguation 14 Paris, 7 Birminghams cities called And, Annan name variants (exonyms) Zoom on Europe

22 JRC-Ispra, , Slide 22 Recognising names, places, … - News navigation Top-mentioned personalities En/Fr news 26 July 2004

23 JRC-Ispra, , Slide 23 Automatic recognition of name variants

24 JRC-Ispra, , Slide 24 Automatic link to online encyclopaedia

25 JRC-Ispra, , Slide 25 News clusters mentioning a person

26 JRC-Ispra, , Slide 26 Persons talked about in same news clusters

27 JRC-Ispra, , Slide 27 Countries talked about in same news clusters

28 JRC-Ispra, , Slide 28 Frequent keywords for these news clusters

29 JRC-Ispra, , Slide 29 Recognising products and product groups Sample text

30 JRC-Ispra, , Slide 30 Recognising products and product groups Identified products
