Oberon Berlage recently successfully defended his MSc. thesis (title above!) for the Data Science Master at University of Amsterdam, and graduated with a whopping 9!

He’s the first academic offspring of our AI Team @ FD Mediagroep, and worked on BNR SMART Radio‘s segmenter. Oberon improved our text-based segmenter by adding audio embeddings, improving the F1 score with +32%!

His thesis is now online, check it out at: http://scriptiesonline.uba.uva.nl/document/673254

Abstract This paper describes our approach to the 2012 Text Analysis Conference (TAC) Knowledge Base Population (KBP) entity linking track. For this task, we turn to a state-of-the-art system for entity linking in microblog posts. Compared to the little context microblog posts provide, the documents in the TAC KBP track provide context of greater length and of a less noisy nature. In this paper, we adapt the entity linking system for microblog posts to the KBP task by extending it with approaches that explicitly rely on the queryโ€™s context. We show that incorporating novel features that leverage the context on the entity-level can lead to improved performance in the TAC KBP task.

As I’ve finished my MSc thesis and have started working at the Information and Language Processing Systems group (ILPS) at the Universiteit van Amsterdam as a PhD candidate in a project in Semantic Search for e-Discovery, I figured it’d be time to leave my thesis blog behind, and start a brand new research blog.
