Silvia Necşulescu

Silvia Necşulescu is  appointed as ESR at IULA, Universitat Pompeu Fabra from October, 15 2010 for a period of three years.

Current research

Her research project aims to overcome the problem caused by data sparsity in the automatic development of language resources, based on distributional information. She investigates a method to discover more possible co-occurring words for low-frequent words, besides the co-occurrences existent in corpus. Her approach relies on a similarity measure between words, based on statistical information of the words usage in context. She expects that this measure approves a transfer of context from a frequent word to a low-frequent word.
