Tracking Dragon-Hunters with Language Models (bibtex)
by Leuski, Anton and Lavrenko, Victor
Abstract:
We are interested in the problem of understanding the connections between human activities and the content of textual information generated in regard to those activities. Massive online collaborative environments, specifically online virtual worlds, where people meet, exchange messages, and perform actions can be a rich source for such an analysis. In this paper we study one of such virtual worlds and the activities of its inhabitants. We explore the existing dependencies between the activities and the content of the chat messages the world's inhabitants exchange with each other. We outline three experimental tasks and show how language modeling and text clustering techniques allow us to explore those dependencies successfully.
