Talk about Coreference Resolution with Marta Recasens, a Research Scientist at Google., about the complexity involved in resolving references in language, the simplification of the problem that the NLP community has focused on by talking about specific datasets, and the complex coreference phenomena that are not yet captured in those datasets. They also briefly talked about how coreference is handled in languages other than English, and how some of the notions we have about modeling coreference phenomena in English do not necessarily transfer to other languages. The discussion ends by talking about large language models, and to what extent they might be good at handling
The Blecua Prize 2011 for the best published work based on a doctoral thesis has been awarded to Marta Recasens Potau for the paper “Identity, non-identity, and near-identity: Addressing the complexity of coreference” published in Lingua, 121(6):1138-1152.
