In an example, an application forms a communicative discourse tree from a subset of text by matching each fragment of the subset that has a verb to a verb signature. The application identifies that the subset includes an argument by applying a classification model trained to detect argumentation to the communicative discourse tree. The application further creates a logic system based on a claim of the argument, a domain definition clause associated with a domain of the text, a set of defeasible rules based on the communicative discourse tree, and a set of facts from one or more of the communicative actions of the communicative discourse tree. The application evaluates a consistency of the argument with respect to itself and with respect to the domain definition clauses by solving the logic system, thereby validating a claim associated with the argument.

The system also has a trained understanding model that can classify natural language utterances according to user intent. When the understanding model cannot determine with sufficient confidence that a natural language utterance corresponds to one of the specific intents, the natural language processing system traverses the hierarchy of intents to find a more general user intent that is related to the most applicable specific intent of the utterance and for which there is sufficient confidence. The general intent can then be used to prompt the user with questions applicable to the general intent to obtain the missing information needed for a specific intent.

The method further includes adding, based on the analysis, non-core data to the first entry. The non-core data corresponds to domain-specific lexical information for the base term. The non-core data identifies the modifier term as a domain-specific modifier of the base term.

  • Patent number: 10733224
    Abstract: A mechanism is provided in a data processing system comprising at least one processor and at least one memory, the at least one memory comprising instructions executed by the at least one processor to cause the at least one processor to implement an automated lexicon expansion for an identified corpus. For a selected corpus in a set of corpora, the mechanism determines an estimated number of new terms in the selected corpus that are not in the lexicon based on a frequency count known terms in the selected corpus. Responsive to the estimated number of new terms in the selected corpus being greater than a threshold, the mechanism performs lexicon expansion using the selected corpus to form an expanded lexicon. Responsive to the estimated number of new terms in the selected corpus not being greater than the threshold, the mechanism halts lexicon expansion.

  • Patent number: 10713426
    Abstract: Systems, computer-program products and methods for annotating electronic text documents with multiple entities defined in a controlled vocabulary extracted from a compound noun phrase are disclosed. In one embodiment, a method of annotating an electronic text document includes searching, by a computing device, the electronic text document for instances of congruent compound noun phrases including a head and a modifier. If a congruent compound noun phrase is found, the method further includes determining a preceding word that precedes the modifier of the congruent compound noun phrase, and searching a controlled vocabulary for a second full term having the preceding word and the head of the congruent compound noun phrase. If the second full term is found in the controlled vocabulary, the method further includes annotating the electronic text document with the second full term having the preceding word and the head of the congruent compound noun phrase.

  • Patent number: 10713270
    Abstract: Structured exploration of available data provides insight allowing early detection/analysis of emerging issues. An in-memory database engine applies specialized information sources and filter criteria to an original data set to successively produce various exploration levels. Evidence relating to a particular exploration level (e.g., resulting data subset, metadata indicating chains of information sources/filter criteria) are stored at the user's instruction within an evidence package of the in-memory database. Information sources may be licensed from third parties, and may be present in the in-memory database. To improve computer performance, embodiments may delete results of previous exploration levels outside of the evidence package. Evidence from the evidence package may be displayed to afford insight into relationships between data subsets and an emerging issue. One structured exploration references a source of geographic information (e.g.

    Abstract: Systems for inputting text into an electronic device are provided. The systems are configured to receive a sequence of characters input into the device. The systems comprise a means configured to generate from the sequence of characters a sequence of word-segments. The systems also comprise a text prediction engine comprising a language model having stored sequences of word-segments. The text prediction engine is configured to receive the sequence of word-segments. In a first embodiment, the text prediction engine is configured to determine whether each word-segment of the sequence of word-segments corresponds to a stored word-segment of the language model and output the sequence of word-segments as a candidate prediction when each of the word-segments of the sequence of word-segments corresponds to a stored word-segment of the language model, regardless of whether the sequence of word-segments corresponds to a stored sequence of word-segments. Various other systems and corresponding methods are provided.

    Abstract: Systems, devices, and methods of the present invention detect argumentation in text. In an example, an application executing on a computing device accesses text comprising fragments. The application creates a discourse tree from the text. The discourse tree includes nodes, each nonterminal node representing a rhetorical relationship between two of the fragments and each terminal node of the nodes of the discourse tree is associated with one of the fragments. The application matches each fragment that has a verb to a verb signature, thereby creating a communicative discourse tree. The application determines whether the communicative discourse tree represents text that includes argumentation by applying a classification model trained to detect argumentation to the communicative discourse tree.

  • Patent number: 10650099
    Abstract: An architecture and processes enable computer learning and developing an understanding of arbitrary natural language text through collaboration with humans in the context of joint problem solving. The architecture ingests the text and then syntactically and semantically processes the text to infer an initial understanding of the text. The initial understanding is captured in a story model of semantic and frame structures. The story model is then tested through computer generated questions that are posed to humans through interactive dialog sessions. The knowledge gleaned from the humans is used to update the story model as well as the computing system's current world model of understanding. The process is repeated for multiple stories over time, enabling the computing system to grow in knowledge and thereby understand stories of increasingly higher reading comprehension levels.

    Abstract: Systems and methods for improved conversation translation are disclosed. The system receives a first portion of a conversation in a first language. The system translates the first portion of the conversation to a second language. The system generates a predicted second portion of the conversation. The first portion and the predicted second portion are sent to a second user device as a predictive translation. The system then receives an actual second portion of the conversation, translates it to the second language, and sends the first portion and the actual second portion to the second user device as a batch translation. The system compares the batch translation to the predictive translation to identity any differences and generates a color-coded translation highlighting any differences between the batch translation and the predictive translation. The system sends the color-coded translation to the second user device for display on the second user device.
