As part of his research work, Jun Ping has collected a crowdsourced corpus for event-timex temporal relationship classification. The corpus contains sentences with event and time expression pairs marked out, together with the temporal relationship between these expressions, as defined by TempEval-1 and TempEval-2.  His recent COLING 2012 paper was based on this collected corpus, which is now being made available to the general public to spur temporal relationship classification research!

A new Chaptr! PDF Print E-mail

Jesse has been hard at work in his last few months to create Chaptrs, the crowning Mac App that will help you organize your photo collection by events and within events too.  With 100s of photographs taken everyday, Chaptrs is a solution to the problem of finding photos, and for Jesse, getting data about photos from actual users (no private data taken, just simple photo metadata).
