Zero-shot hashtag segmentation for multilingual sentiment analysis

Sala 6.3.27, Ciências ULisboa (com transmissão através de videoconferência)

Por Marcelo Inuzuka e Ruan Rodrigues.

For sentiment analysis in medium to low-resourced languages, a multilingual approach that resorts to machine translation can be competitive with standard approaches to the task. We develop a zero-shot hashtag segmentation framework and demonstrate how it can be used to improve the accuracy of multilingual sentiment analysis pipelines. Besides, also being useful for accelerating data annotation, our zero-shot framework establishes a new state-of-the-art for hashtag segmentation datasets, surpassing even previous approaches that relied on feature engineering and language models trained on in-domain data.

The objective of this course is to acquire knowledge regarding bioinformatic tools available to predict nucleic acid (RNA, DNA or Nucleic Acids Mimics) and protein three-dimensional structure, as well as autonomy and critical thinking in the use of those tools.

Science is increasingly more present in our everyday decisions, with a fundamental role in global problems. Scientists, as the main actors in the production of scientific knowledge, have the responsibility of having an active voice in communicating this knowledge.

The course aims at introducing attendants to an updated state of the art of diversity of the soil biota and the functional roles played by soil organisms in key ecological processes.

Symbiosis is a key strategy for life on Earth. Nevertheless, although many research groups have long been committed to the study of symbiosis, its definition and functioning are not fully understood, and its ecological role and relevance are still underestimated.

This 5-day course offers to the participants a light microscopy course focusing on fluorescence microscopy techniques applied to the detection of proteins and glycans in tissue samples and cell cultures.

This course aims to explore ways of communicating science to non-specialized audiences, such as policy makers, industry, general public (including students and teachers), through their engagement and participation in citizen science activities.

The objective of this course is to provide students with basic knowledge of R programming, allowing them to manipulate and visualize data with R.

The objective of this course is to provide students with statistical knowledge and tools to manipulate, analyze and visualize biological data with R. Introduction to modeling, simulations and Bayesian statistics.

Under the general framework of Global Change Ecology, the goal of this course is to provide the participants with the most recent and practical knowledge on the use of Functional Diversity. This includes the selection of functional traits and calculation of Functional Diversity Indexes.

The course provides essential skills and knowledge that enable the participants to develop climate change adaptation strategies.
