Predicting Informativeness of Semantic Triples
Judita Preiss
Proceedings of the International Conference on Recent Advances in Natural Language Processing (RANLP 2021)

Many automatic semantic relation extraction tools extract subject-predicate-object triples from unstructured text. However, a large quantity of these triples merely represent background knowledge. We explore using full texts of biomedical publications to create a training corpus of informative and important semantic triples based on the notion that the main contributions of an article are summarized in its abstract. This corpus is used to train a deep learning classifier to identify important triples, and we suggest that an importance ranking for semantic triples could also be generated.

HiDE: a Tool for Unrestricted Literature Based Discovery
Judita Preiss | Mark Stevenson
Proceedings of the 27th International Conference on Computational Linguistics: System Demonstrations

As the quantity of publications increases daily, researchers are forced to narrow their attention to their own specialism and are therefore less likely to make new connections with other areas. Literature based discovery (LBD) supports the identification of such connections. A number of LBD tools are available, however, they often suffer from limitations such as constraining possible searches or not producing results in real-time. We introduce HiDE (Hidden Discovery Explorer), an online knowledge browsing tool which allows fast access to hidden knowledge generated from all abstracts in Medline. HiDE is fast enough to allow users to explore the full range of hidden connections generated by an LBD system. The tool employs a novel combination of two approaches to LBD: a graph-based approach which allows hidden knowledge to be generated on a large scale and an inference algorithm to identify the most promising (most likely to be non trivial) information.
