PhD theses defended
Nils' thesis is titled "Discovering Structural Similarities in Narrative Texts using Event Alignment Algorithms" and strikes a new path towards large-scale empirical research of narrative texts within the emerging paradigm of Digital Humanities.
Michael's thesis "Inducing Implicit Arguments via Cross-document Alignment – A Framework and its Applications" establishes novel empirical insights on the impact of implicit arguments for semantic discourse processing and proves its relevance for NLP applications.
Both theses will be published open access this or early next year.
