The Birth of Collective Memories: Analyzing Emerging Entities in Text Streams

The Birth of Collective Memories: Analyzing Emerging Entities in Text Streams | Language Tech Market News | Scoop.it
The online text streams we use for our analysis comprise of social media and news streams, and span over 579 million documents in a time span of 18 months. We discover two main emergence patterns: entities that emerge in a “bursty” fashion, that is, that appear in public discourse without a precedent, blast into activity and transition into collective memory. Other entities display a “delayed” pattern, where they appear in public discourse, experience a period of inactivity, and then resurface before transitioning into our cultural collective memory

Before topics get institutionalised in Wikipedia. Strange stuff.

@Exfluency's #Blockchain Vision for the #Translation Industry

Robert Etches: "Already in 10–15 years, there will be some household (corporate) names and technologies that do not exist or have only just started today. And by 2050 the entire finance, food, and transport sectors (to name the obvious) will be ‘blockchained’ beyond recognition. At Exfluency, we see multilingual communication as an obvious area where a token economy and blockchain will also come out on top; I’m sure that other entrepreneurs in a myriad of other sectors are coming to similar conclusions."

Danger of Inferential Analytics for Anonymised Data in a GDPR Culture

Danger of Inferential Analytics for Anonymised Data in a GDPR Culture | Language Tech Market News | Scoop.it
None of the rights in the GDPR will apply to anonymized data. This is problematic for two reasons. First, any de-identified data can theoretically be reverse engineered and linked back to an individual4. Second, even truly anonymized data can be used to build user profiles and thus privacy and discrimination harms still occur5, without the need to identify a particular individual. Here again data protection law focuses on the stage of data collection rather than on how the data is used, and its effects on relevant individuals and groups6.

The Risks of Using #BLEU in #NLP

I would urge you to use BLEU if and only if:

  1. You’re doing machine translation AND
  2. You’re evaluating across an entire corpus AND
  3. You know the limitations of the metric and you’re prepared to accept them.

Otherwise, I’d invest the time to find a metric that’s a better fit for your specific problem.
