ACL 2012: 3rd workshop on the People’s Web Meets NLP
Collaboratively Constructed Semantic Resources and their Applications to NLP
Jeju, Republic of Korea
July 13, 2012
The topics addressed will include but are not limited to:
- Using collaboratively constructed resources and the information mined from them for NLP tasks (cf. Section ‘References’), such as word sense disambiguation, semantic role labeling, information retrieval, text categorization, information extraction, question answering, etc.
- Mining social and collaborative content for constructing structured lexical semantic resources, annotated corpora and the corresponding tools
- Analyzing the structure of collaboratively constructed resources related to their use in NLP
- Computational linguistics studies of collaboratively constructed resources, such as wiki-based platforms or folksonomies
- Structural and semantic interoperability of collaboratively constructed resources with conventional semantic resources and between themselves
- Mining multilingual information from collaboratively constructed resources
- Using special features of collaboratively constructed resources to create novel resource types, for example revision-based corpora, simplified versions of resources, etc.
- Quality and reliability of collaboratively constructed lexical semantic resources and annotated corpora
- Hands-on practical knowledge on utilization of CSR APIs and tools or designing crowdsourcing procedures for high quality outcomes

Phrase Detectives: the First Three Years
Phrase Detectives, one of the first games-with-a-purpose for corpus annotation http://www.phrasedetectives.org
went officially online on December 1st 2008, and one of its very first presentations in front of an NLP audience took place at the first edition of the 'People's Web Meets NLP' workshop in Singapore in 2009. The option of annotating Italian documents was added in 2010, and a Facebook version went live in January 2012. Although the project that funded its creation ended in September 2009, the game has stayed very much alive, in fact it is getting more active all the time - we recently passed the 11,000 players mark and are about to reach 200,000 words of fully annotated documents, with a goal of annotating at least 1 million. In the talk I will discuss recent developments and analyze the results so far in terms of quality and quantity of annotated data and annotation costs.
