ROUGE summarization evaluation metric, enhanced with use of Word Embeddings as described in:

OVERVIEW

This program helps compute the ROUGE-WE scores of summaries. ROUGE-WE builds on top of ROUGE (http://www.berouge.com).

REQUISITES

You will need the following:

  1. word2vec pre-trained vectors https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B7XkCwpI5KDYNlNUTTlSS21pQmM/edit?usp=sharing

USAGE

  1. Start up the word2vec query server:

? python word2vec_server.m.py -m

  1. Test the word2vec query server by sending a HTTP Post request to: http://localhost:8888/word2vecdiff

You can do this in a variety of ways, such as by using curl. The following examples work in OS X:

? curl -X POST --data "word1=king&word2=queen" http://localhost:8888/word2vecdiff
{"status": 1, "word2vec_sim": 0.651095648143}

? curl -X POST --data "word1=raining heavily&word2=snowing badly" http://localhost:8888/word2vecdiff
{"status": 1, "word2vec_sim": 0.293822419014}

  1. Run ROUGE-WE in the same way you would with ROUGE-1.5.5.pl

NOTE: First create the necessary config file. A sample has been pre-created. Some sample data is found in rouge_1.5.5_data and the XML required is given in sample-config.xml
? ./ROUGE-WE-1.0.0.pl -x -n 2 -U -2 4 -e rouge_1.5.5_data/ -c 95 -a sample-config.xml

Sample output:

1 ROUGE-1 Average_R: 0.23145 (95%-conf.int. 0.23145 - 0.23145)
1 ROUGE-1 Average_P: 0.27279 (95%-conf.int. 0.27279 - 0.27279)
1 ROUGE-1 Average_F: 0.25043 (95%-conf.int. 0.25043 - 0.25043)
1 ROUGE-2 Average_R: 0.05782 (95%-conf.int. 0.05782 - 0.05782)
1 ROUGE-2 Average_P: 0.06894 (95%-conf.int. 0.06894 - 0.06894)
1 ROUGE-2 Average_F: 0.06289 (95%-conf.int. 0.06289 - 0.06289) ...... ......

ROADMAP

An update is under development, which does away with the Python based web server, and directly loads the word2vec vectors inside Perl instead. I hope to get this done real soon.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
