been morphologically disambiguated using a part-of-speech tagger. In this talk,
 
I survey recent developments in transition-based dependency parsing that address
 
some of the limitations of the basic transition-based approach. First, I show
 
how globally trained classifiers and beam search can be used to mitigate error
 
propagation and enable richer feature representations. Secondly, I discuss
 
different methods for extending the coverage to non-projective trees, which are
 
required for linguistic adequacy in many languages.Finally, I present a
 
model for joint tagging and parsing that leads to improvements in both tagging
 
and parsing accuracy as compared to the standard pipeline approach.

Ph.D. in General Linguistics from the University of Gothenburg and a Ph.D. in
 
Computer Science from Växjö University. Joakim's research focuses on data-driven
 
methods for natural language processing, in particular for syntactic and semantic analysis. He is one of the main developers of the transition-based
 
approach to syntactic dependency parsing, described in his 2006 book Inductive
 
Dependency Parsing and implemented in the MaltParser system. Joakim?s current
 
research interests include the analysis of mildly non-projective dependency
 
structures, the integration of morphological and syntactic processing for richly
 
inflected languages, and methods for cross-framework parser evaluation. He has
 
produced over 150 scientific publications, including 3 books, and has given
 
nearly 70 invited talks at conferences and institutions around the world. He is
 
the current secretary of the European Chapter of the Association for
 
Computational Linguistics.

'''Abstract:''' Performance comparisons between File Signatures and Inverted
 
Files for text retrieval have previously shown several
 
significant shortcomings of file signatures relative to inverted
 
files. The inverted file approach underpins most state-of-the-art
 
search engine algorithms, such as Language and Probabilistic
 
models. It has been widely accepted that traditional
 
file signatures are inferior alternatives to inverted files. This
 
paper describes TopSig, a modern approach to the construction
 
of file signatures - many advances in semantic hashing and
 
dimensionality reduction have been made in recent times,
 
but these were not so far linked to general purpose, signature
 
file based, search engines. This paper introduces a different
 
signature file approach that builds upon and extends
 
these recent advances. We are able to demonstrate significant
 
improvements in the performance of signature file based
 
indexing and retrieval, performance that is comparable to
 
that of state of the art inverted file based systems, including
 
Language models and BM25. These findings suggest that
 
file signatures offer a viable alternative to inverted files in
 
suitable settings and position the file signature model in
 
the class of Vector Space retrieval models.
 
TopSig is an open-source search engine from QUT and it can be discussed too if there is an interest.
