Generating QA Quizzes from DBPedia
Educational quizzes are useful not only to evaluate or test the knowledge acquired by a learner, but also to help her/him to deepen knowledge about a specific domain or topic in an informal and entertaining way. However, their creation is a time-consuming task that may also require the knowledge of domain experts. In this context, an automatic approach to the generation of quizzes that takes advantage of existing knowledge bases available on the Web of Linked Open Data (LOD) will be presented. Additionally, through specific use cases, some related research problems and their proposed solutions will be also detailed.
Preprocessing in Natural Language Processing
On many Natural Language Processing applications where real-world data are involved, it is a necessary thing to proceed to some preprocessing steps in order to achieve the best possible performances -or at least some usable results-. We will review the key principles and methodologies to achieve this goal during this introductory course. Nowadays, it is fairly common to work with heterogeneous data, so if you know how to curate your textual information, it is within your reach to build an efficient system without necessarily depending on the latest most popular API.
