AutoSense Model for Word Sense Induction

This code was used in the experiments of the research paper

Reinald Kim Amplayo, Seung-won Hwang, and Min Song. AutoSense Model for Word Sense Induction. AAAI, 2019.

The src/models folder contains one Java file containing the GAS class. The GAS (Granularity-Agnostic Sense Model) refers to the AutoSense model. To use the model, create an object of GAS using the following line:

GAS gas = new GAS(data, target, numSenses, numTopics, alpha, beta, gamma);


  • data: is a list of data instances
  • target: is the target word
  • numSenses: is the number of senses hyperparameter
  • numTopics: is the number of topics hyperparameter
  • alpha: is the Dirichlet prior of the topic distribution (set to 0.1 in the paper)
  • beta: is the Dirichlet prior of the sense distribution (set to 0.01 in the paper)
  • gamma: is the Dirichlet prior of the switch distribution (set to 0.3 in the paper)

Then, you would need to run the Gibbs sampler using the following lines of code:


where numIters is the number of iterations (set to 2000 in the paper).

To print the results, use the line:

gas.printSemEval(filename, target);
