Evaluating Multimodal Representations on Visual Semantic Textual Similarity

The combination of visual and textual representations has produced excellent results in tasks such as image captioning and visual question answering, but the inference capabilities of multimodal representations are largely untested.
In the case of textual representations, inference tasks such as Textual Entailment and Semantic Textual Similarity have been often used to benchmark the quality of textual representations.

Verb+Noun Multiword Expressions: A linguistic analysis for identification and translation

Multiword Expressions (MWEs) are combinations of words which exhibit some kind of idiosyncrasy. Due to their idiosyncratic nature, they pose several problems to Natural Language Processing (NLP). In this PhD, two of the most challenging tasks concerning MWE processing are addressed: the automatic identification of MWE occurrences in corpora and their translation in Machine Translation (MT).
